More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that controls the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be developed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement 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 have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some worries due to the fact that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this has 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 opened by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
