.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that administrates the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be created to be viewed 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 involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some concerns taking into consideration that the TLD 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 built in such a way as to be accessed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
