.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that administers the generic TLDs, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be developed to be accessed correctly 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 involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have raised some questions taking into consideration that the universal domain is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 site should be built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can get 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 company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
