More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that manages the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some questions given that the generic 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP key from your current 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.
