.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that operates the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be built to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have raised some worries taking into account that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
