More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that operates the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be developed to be opened without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some concerns due to the fact that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can order a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
