.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that controls the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI 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 specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be created to be opened properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some questions as the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can book a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
