.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that supervises the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be created to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some concerns given the fact that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can get 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 code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
