More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the body that administers the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain 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 regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be developed to be viewed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have raised some worries as the TLD 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered 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 hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
