More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that handles the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be designed to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some concerns taking into account that the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open 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 designed in such a way as to be opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
