.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that administers the gTLDs, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name 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 rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be developed to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some worries considering 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 has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can order a .MOBI domain with any third-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 code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
