.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that controls the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be built to be opened properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some questions considering that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 built in such a way as to be accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
