Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that controls the universal domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be developed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some questions as the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer code from your current 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.
