.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that operates the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement 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 website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have induced some concerns taking into account that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can book a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your current registrar firm. 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.
