More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that handles the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be created to be accessed properly by mobile devices in accordance 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 page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some questions given the fact that the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open 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 created in such a way as to be accessed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
