More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that oversees the generic domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be built to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some questions due to the fact that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 created in such a way as to be accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can order a dot 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 get its EPP code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
