More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the body that operates the generic domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with specific regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be designed to be viewed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some concerns due to the fact that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 site 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 does not register domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
