More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the entity that oversees the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be developed to be opened properly 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 have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some questions since the universal top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get 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 a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
