Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that oversees the generic domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain 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 are required to comply with special terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be developed to be opened 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 dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some questions given the fact that the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
