More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the entity that controls the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be accessed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some concerns given that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can obtain 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 company if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
