.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that operates the universal domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be designed to be accessed 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 have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some concerns because the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 website should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
