More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the entity that regulates the generic TLDs, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to 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 website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some concerns due to the fact that the universal domain is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 designed in such a way as to be viewed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
