More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that regulates the generic TLDs, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be created to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some concerns given that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
