Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that controls the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be designed to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some questions given the fact that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
