.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that administers the gTLDs, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be built to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some questions as the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this should 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 the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can purchase 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 obtain its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
