Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that regulates the gTLDs, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be built to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have induced some concerns given the fact that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to 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 site should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can purchase 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 obtain its EPP transfer code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
