More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that administrates the generic TLDs, ICANN, established 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 must comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be built to be accessed properly 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 incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some concerns as the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this has 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 accessed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
