Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that oversees the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be developed to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some questions taking into consideration that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP code from your current registrar. 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.
