.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that handles the generic TLDs, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be built to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot 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 worries considering the fact that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 web page should be created in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
