.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the body that administers the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be built to be accessed flawlessly 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 dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some worries taking into consideration that the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need 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 designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
