.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the organization that regulates the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be built to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some worries since the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices need 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 designed in such a way as to be viewed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
