.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the body that handles the universal top-level domains, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be designed 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 cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have raised some questions considering the fact that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get 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 a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
