.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that administrates the universal top-level domains, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be built to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some questions since the universal top-level domain 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 website should be built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
