More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that handles the generic TLDs, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be created to be opened properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration 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 rules have induced some worries considering the fact that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 website should be created in such a way as to be opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
