.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administers the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be accessed properly 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. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some questions due to the fact that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 designed in such a way as to be accessed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
