.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the body that operates the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be built 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 cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised some worries due to the fact that the generic top-level domain 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 website should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
