More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that manages the generic TLDs, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some worries given the fact that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 web page should be created in such a way as to be accessed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
