.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that administrates the universal domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be developed to be accessed correctly 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 dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have raised some worries due to the fact 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 needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be built in such a way as to be opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
