More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the entity that administers the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be designed to be opened 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 partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some questions taking into consideration that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 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 does not sell domains directly, you can get 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 authorization code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
