.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that administers the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be created to be viewed correctly 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 dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some worries due to the fact that the universal top-level 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 site should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a dot 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 get its EPP transfer code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
