More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the organization that supervises the generic TLDs, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be developed to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have induced some questions given that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this must 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 the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
