.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that manages the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be built to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some concerns because the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 site should be created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
