.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administrates the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be created to be accessed 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 partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some questions due to the fact that the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
