.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the entity that handles the gTLDs, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed 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 partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some worries considering the fact that the generic top-level domain extension 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
