More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the entity that regulates the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be designed to be opened without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised some concerns because the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
