.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that operates the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be developed to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation 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 regulations have provoked some questions due to the fact that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 created in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
