More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that supervises the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be built to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some worries as the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access a website and the way in which this should 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 opened by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can purchase a dot 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 company if you get its EPP transfer key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
