Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that supervises the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be built to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have induced some concerns because the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP code from your present registrar firm.
