.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that manages the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be built to be opened 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 dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have raised some questions since the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this must 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 most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
