More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that supervises the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be opened without problems 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 involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some questions given the fact that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get 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 one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
