More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the body that controls the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be created to be viewed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some worries as the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that 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 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 control your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
