Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that handles the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be developed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement 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 organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some worries taking into consideration that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 site should be built in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
