Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that oversees the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be designed to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement 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 site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some questions taking into account that the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open 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 created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
