More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that controls the generic TLDs, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be designed to be viewed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. 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 raised some questions in view of the fact that the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open 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 built in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
