Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that operates the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain 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 should comply with special terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be built to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some concerns taking into consideration that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access 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 designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
