More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that administrates the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be built to be viewed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some questions given that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
