.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that supervises the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be created to be opened 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 cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some questions taking into consideration that the universal top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this should 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 web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, 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 present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
