.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that controls the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be developed to be accessed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some questions in view of the fact that the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 website should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
