More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that operates the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be developed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some questions taking into account that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access 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 opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
