.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that controls the generic domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be built to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some concerns given the fact that the generic TLD 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 viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can order a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
