.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that oversees the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be built to be viewed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some questions given the fact 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 website should be created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer key from your present 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.
