More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that controls the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be created to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some concerns since the 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
