More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administers the gTLDs, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be developed to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance 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 incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some questions since the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 site should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
