Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that manages the universal top-level domains, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be designed to be opened flawlessly 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 dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have induced some questions taking into account that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this must 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 viewed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
