Dot 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 meet this demand, the body that controls the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be built to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some concerns considering the fact that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 website should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that 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 company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
