.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that supervises the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be developed to be accessed 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 .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some questions given that the universal 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 has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP code from your present registrar firm. 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 tool.
