More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the body that supervises the universal top-level domains, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be developed to be viewed properly by mobile devices in agreement 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 organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some concerns in view of the fact that the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 built in such a way as to be opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
