Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the organization that controls the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be created to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in accordance 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. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have induced some questions given the fact that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access 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 created in such a way as to be opened by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
