More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that oversees the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be designed to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised some concerns due to the fact that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices ought to 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 website should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
