Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that controls the gTLDs, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be designed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some concerns in view of the fact that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 website should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can grab 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 firm if you obtain its EPP code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
