More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that manages the universal domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be developed to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some worries because the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this needs 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 Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
