.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that operates the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be built to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised some questions since the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices need 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot 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 already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
