Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the body that regulates the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be developed to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in accordance 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 have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some worries due to the fact that the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
