.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that operates the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be built to be opened properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some worries taking into consideration that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 website should be created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can book a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
