Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the entity that administrates the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the .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 must comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be developed to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some worries in view of the fact that the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 site should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can acquire a dot 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 get its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
