.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that controls the gTLDs, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be designed to be opened without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some questions given that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 web page should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
