Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that manages the gTLDs, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be created to be viewed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have raised some concerns taking into consideration that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access 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 created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can grab a .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 firm if you acquire its EPP code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
