.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the body that handles the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be built to be accessed faultlessly 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 organization. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some worries because the top-level 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 site should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar firm. 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.
