.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that handles the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be built to be viewed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some questions due to the fact that the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
