.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the body that handles the universal top-level domains, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be developed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some questions since the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 website should be created in such a way as to be opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, 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 firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
