.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that administrates the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be created to be opened 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 incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some questions given the fact that the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open a website and the way in which this has 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 most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
