.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the organization that supervises the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .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 have to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be developed to be viewed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some concerns because the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to 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 website should be created in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can acquire 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 acquire its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
