More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that supervises the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be developed to be viewed flawlessly 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 organization. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some questions taking into consideration that the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
