.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that controls the universal top-level domains, 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 have to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be designed to be viewed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation 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), etc.
The requirements have raised some questions considering that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this has 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 accessed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
