Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that regulates the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be developed to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some worries taking into consideration that the universal top-level 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 needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can book a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
