.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the body that administrates the generic domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some worries taking into account that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. 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.
