More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that operates the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name 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 special requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be designed to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have induced some worries as the gTLD 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 designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can get a dot 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 get its EPP code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
