Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that controls the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be created to be opened 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 dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have raised some worries considering the fact that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs 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 the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
