Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that manages the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be built to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some questions as the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can book a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
