Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the body that operates the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some questions considering the fact that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
