.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that oversees the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be designed to be accessed properly 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 organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have raised some questions as the universal top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 designed in such a way as to be opened by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
