.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that supervises the gTLDs, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be created to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised some worries considering that the universal top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to 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 most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
