More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that controls the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched 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 should comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be developed to be opened faultlessly 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 .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some worries because the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
