.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that oversees the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be created to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some questions in view of the fact that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
