.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that controls the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with special requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised some worries given that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 website should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can order a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
