More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administers the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with special regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some worries because the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-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 authorization key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
