Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that administrates the generic domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be created to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some concerns because the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. 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.
