.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that supervises the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be created to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some concerns since the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
