.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that controls the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some questions taking into consideration that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP code 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.
