More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the organization that handles the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be designed to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in accordance 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 organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some questions due to the fact that the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 web page should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
