More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the body that supervises the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be created to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have induced some questions taking into consideration that the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
