More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that operates the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be created to be viewed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have raised some questions given the fact that the universal top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
