.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that controls the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with specific terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have induced some concerns considering the fact that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this must 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.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your present 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.
