More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the organization that handles the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be designed to be opened properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some worries taking into account that the universal top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open 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 built in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
