More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that oversees the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with certain terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be created to be viewed properly by mobile devices in accordance 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 incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some concerns in view of the fact that the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet 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 acquire a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
