.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that handles the universal domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be developed to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some worries in view of the fact that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
