Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the body that operates the generic domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be designed to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some questions in view of the fact that the universal top-level 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
