.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that operates the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be designed to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have raised some concerns given that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access 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 accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
