More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that controls the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be developed to be accessed 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 collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some concerns as the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this should 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 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 offer domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
