More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that controls the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be developed to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some questions as the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
