.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that operates the generic TLDs, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some concerns taking into account that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 web page should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
