.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the organization that controls the universal domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be created to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership 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), etc.
The rules have raised some questions in view of the fact that the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open 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 opened by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can reserve a .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 obtain its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
