.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that handles the generic TLDs, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration 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 requirements have raised some concerns considering the fact that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to 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 web page should be created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
