.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that operates the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be built to be opened correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some worries due to the fact that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access 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 built in such a way as to be accessed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
