Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that regulates the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI 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 are required to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be developed to be viewed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some questions taking into account that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 created in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
