.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that regulates the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be created 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 .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some questions taking into consideration that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 site should be built in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP key from your current registrar. 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.
