Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the body that operates the generic domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some questions given the fact that the universal top-level domain 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 website should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP 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.
