.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that oversees the generic domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be developed to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance 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. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have raised some worries given that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open 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 created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can book a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
