.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the organization that regulates the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be developed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have raised some questions due to the fact that the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
