More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that administrates the gTLDs, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration 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 requirements have provoked some questions because the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 website should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
