More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that administers the universal top-level domains, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be created to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in accordance 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 involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some worries because the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 created in such a way as to be viewed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
