Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that handles the generic domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some concerns as the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can order a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
