.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that controls the universal domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be opened without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation 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 requirements have provoked some questions due to the fact that the top-level 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 should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can acquire 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 company if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
