More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that manages the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be opened faultlessly 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 .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some questions given that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access 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 Internet browsers 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 provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
