More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that controls the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be built to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some worries considering that the universal top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 created in such a way as to be opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
