More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that manages the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be built to be accessed 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 collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have raised some concerns due to the fact that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
