Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administrates the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be built to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some questions as the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open 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 built in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
