Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that manages the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be designed to be accessed properly by mobile devices in agreement 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. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some concerns given that the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
