.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that controls the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be designed to be accessed 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), and so on.
The requirements have induced some concerns considering the fact that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
