.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 fulfill this demand, the establishment that supervises the universal domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be built to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some questions given the fact that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access 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 viewed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
