Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that manages the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be developed to be viewed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some concerns taking into consideration that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open 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 created in such a way as to be opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can order a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP key from your present registrar. 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 interface.
