Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that operates the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be built to be viewed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some questions considering that the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
