More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that manages the gTLDs, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with specific regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be designed to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have induced some worries considering that the generic TLD is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this has to 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 browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
