Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that operates the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be built to be viewed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have raised some concerns since the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can reserve 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 transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
