.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that controls the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be built to be opened 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 partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some questions since the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to 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 website should be created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As 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 get its EPP key from your present registrar company. 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 tool.
