More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that manages the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be created to be opened faultlessly 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 dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some worries since the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
