More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that controls the generic top-level extensions, 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 need to comply with special terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be created to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some questions since the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can order a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
