Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that controls the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be created to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some worries as the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open a website and the way in which this has 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 most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer code from your present 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.
