More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that operates the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be built to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance 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 involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some concerns taking into account that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization 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.
