More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that administers the generic TLDs, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be developed to be opened 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 partnership 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 regulations have provoked some worries because the generic top-level domain 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 site should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP code from your current 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 interface.
