More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that administers the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be created to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some questions because the generic TLD 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 website should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, 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 code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
