More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that operates the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be developed to be opened 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 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 rules have provoked some concerns in view of the fact that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this must 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 browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
