More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the organization that operates the generic TLDs, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in accordance 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 organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some questions considering the fact that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
