.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that regulates the universal domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be built to be opened without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some questions because the universal top-level domain extension 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 created in such a way as to be viewed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
