.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that manages the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be created to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some questions in view of the fact that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open a website and the way in which this should 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 most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any third-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 code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
