Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the body that controls the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be created to be viewed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some concerns considering that the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to 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.
As the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
