.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that controls the universal top-level domains, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be developed to be opened 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 dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some concerns due to the fact that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open 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 created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
