More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administers the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some worries taking into account that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 web page should be created in such a way as to be accessed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can order a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
