.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that operates the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be designed to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation 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 requirements have provoked some concerns considering the fact that the generic top-level domain 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 website should be built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can book a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
