More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that controls the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be built to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration 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 rules have induced some concerns considering that the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 site should be created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
