More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the body that manages the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be created to be viewed faultlessly 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 dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some questions due to the fact that the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can book a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
