.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the body that operates the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI 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 certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be created to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have induced some questions in view of the fact that the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
