Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the body that controls the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be developed to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some worries considering the fact that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any third-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 code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
