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 organization that oversees the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be developed to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised some questions given the fact that the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access 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 created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
