.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that manages the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be built to be viewed properly 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 .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some questions due to the fact that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this should 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.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can secure 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 company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
