Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the entity that oversees the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be built to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some concerns considering that the generic top-level domain 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 designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
