More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that operates the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with special requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some worries considering that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access 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 created in such a way as to be viewed by most 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 order 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 company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
