More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that manages the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be built to be accessed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some questions due to the fact 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 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 browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
