.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that administrates the generic TLDs, ICANN, established 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 are required to comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be created to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some questions given that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
