Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that handles the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with special requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be created to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some questions as the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open 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 built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
