Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the entity that oversees the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with special requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be developed to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some worries considering that the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to 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 browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP key from your current registrar. 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 interface.
