More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that regulates the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with certain requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some worries since the universal domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
