More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that supervises the generic domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some concerns considering that the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be built in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
