.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that administers the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be built to be accessed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have raised some worries taking into consideration that the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can book a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
