.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the organization that operates the generic TLDs, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be created to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some concerns given the fact that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
