Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that handles the generic TLDs, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be designed to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have raised some questions given that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to 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 site should be built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can book a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
