More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that controls the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be created to be viewed properly 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 dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some concerns since the universal top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
