More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that controls the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be created to be accessed correctly 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. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised some worries due to the fact that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to 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 the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
