.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that controls the generic domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be developed to be viewed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some concerns taking into consideration that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
