More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that handles the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be accessed faultlessly 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 incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some questions given the fact that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this must 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 opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can buy 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 acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
