More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that oversees the gTLDs, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be built to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have induced some concerns considering the fact that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access 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 Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
