.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that supervises the universal domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some worries in view of the fact that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing 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 manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
