.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 growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that administrates the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be developed to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some worries taking into consideration that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any third-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 code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
