Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that administrates the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be created to be viewed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some concerns because the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open a website and the way in which this has 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 browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, 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 code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
