Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the entity that controls the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be developed to be viewed 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 partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some worries because the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 site should be created in such a way as to be opened by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
