.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that administrates the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be accessed properly 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 dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some concerns in view of the fact that the universal domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs 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 opened by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
