More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that operates the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be developed to be accessed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some worries given the fact that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices need 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 web page should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it 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 administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
