.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that regulates the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be built to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some worries as the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices need 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 accessed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
