.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the body that oversees the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be developed to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some concerns as the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open 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 viewed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
