More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the organization that oversees the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be developed to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some concerns taking into account that the universal top-level 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 built in such a way as to be viewed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
