.MOBI Domain Names

More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the body that handles the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be created to be viewed properly by mobile devices in agreement 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 have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.

The restrictions have raised some questions considering that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs 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 viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.

Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
