More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that handles the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be created to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some worries due to the fact that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
