.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that operates the generic TLDs, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be created to be viewed 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 cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some concerns taking into account that the universal top-level domain 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 built in such a way as to be opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-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 transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
