.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the body that administers the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be created to be viewed faultlessly 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 involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some worries due to the fact that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can book a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
