.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that oversees the generic TLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be viewed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some questions taking into account that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
