More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that manages the gTLDs, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be built to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some worries considering the fact that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open 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 created in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP key from your current registrar company. 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.
