More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the organization that controls the generic domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be developed to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some concerns in view of the fact that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
