More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that handles the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be built to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised some worries considering the fact that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 designed in such a way as to be viewed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your present registrar company. 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.
