.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that administrates the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be built to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some questions due to the fact that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices need 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 website should be built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can purchase 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 company if you get its EPP key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
