.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that administrates the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be built to be viewed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some worries due to the fact that the universal domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access 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 viewed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can book a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours.
