More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that regulates the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance 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. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some worries in view of the fact that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this should 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 most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
