More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that regulates the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be designed to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some worries taking into consideration that the universal top-level extension 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 created in such a way as to be viewed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
