More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that handles the generic top-level domain name 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 should comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be built to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some concerns given the fact that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 site should be created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can book 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 company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
