Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that regulates the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be developed to be opened properly 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 .MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some concerns due to the fact that the universal domain 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 website should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
