More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the body that regulates the generic TLDs, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be developed to be opened without problems by mobile devices in accordance 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 involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some worries taking into account that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to 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 web page should be created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
