.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that operates the generic TLDs, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be built to be opened without problems 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 dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some worries in view of the fact that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
