More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that regulates the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in accordance 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 incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some concerns as 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 accessed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
