.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the entity that supervises the universal domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be developed to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some questions given that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open a website and the way in which this has to 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 most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP key from your current 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.
