.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the organization that regulates the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be built to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established 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), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some questions as the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to 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 the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
