.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that regulates the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be developed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some worries taking into consideration that the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
