.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the entity that handles the universal domain extensions, ICANN, introduced 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 need to comply with special rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be built to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some questions considering the fact that the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As 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 already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
