Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that oversees the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be built to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some concerns given the fact that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 website should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
