.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that handles the generic TLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be opened flawlessly 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. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some questions given that the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
