.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that regulates the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be developed to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some questions as the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need 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 created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
