Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the entity that handles the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be created to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation 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 considering the fact that the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
