.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the body that oversees the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be developed to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created 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), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some worries due to the fact that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open 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 viewed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
