.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the body that administers the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be developed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some worries as the 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP key from your current registrar. 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.
