.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that manages the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with special terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be created to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some concerns in view of the fact that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
