More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that oversees the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be built to be opened properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some worries in view of the fact that the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access 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 accessed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP key from your present registrar firm. 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.
