.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that administers the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be developed to be accessed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership 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 induced some questions as the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this has 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 accessed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key 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.
