Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that handles the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be designed to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some concerns taking into consideration that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
