More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that manages the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be accessed faultlessly 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 dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some questions because the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access 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 built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can order a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your present 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 interface.
