Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the body that handles the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be built to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some worries considering 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 must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be built in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
