More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the organization that supervises the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be developed to be opened without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have raised some questions as the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. 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.
