Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the entity that supervises the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be built to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some worries taking into account that the universal domain extension 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 built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can book a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
