.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the entity that handles the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain 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 terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be developed to be viewed 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 dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some worries since the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can register 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 authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
