.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that regulates the universal top-level domains, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be developed 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 organization. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some questions considering the fact that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open 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 created in such a way as to be accessed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
