Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the organization that oversees the universal domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be created to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation 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), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some worries given that the universal top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
