.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that controls the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established 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 are required to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be built to be opened without problems 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 organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have induced some questions given the fact that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can order a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
