.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administers the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some concerns considering the fact that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 site should be created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
