More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the organization that manages the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be designed to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation 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 regulations have provoked some concerns due to 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 website should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
