Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that oversees the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be built to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some concerns as the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this must 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 opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
