More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that regulates the generic TLDs, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be developed to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some questions considering the fact that the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
