.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the entity that controls the gTLDs, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be built to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some worries taking into consideration that the generic top-level domain name 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 site should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar firm. 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.
