Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the entity that manages the gTLDs, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some concerns taking into consideration that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
