More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that manages the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be built to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some concerns given the fact that the 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 site should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can register 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 firm if you get its EPP key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
