.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that operates the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be developed to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have induced some worries due to the fact that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open 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.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
