.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the entity that supervises the universal top-level domains, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name 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 special rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be created to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some concerns in view of the fact that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open 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 created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
