More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that controls the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be built to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some worries considering that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 website should be created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
