.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that operates the generic TLDs, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be developed to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement 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. 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 worries given the fact that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
