.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that regulates the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be created to be viewed properly by mobile devices in accordance 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 website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some questions considering that the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 site should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can secure a dot 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 firm if you get its EPP code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
