More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that manages the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special regulations. In other words, all dot 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 partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some concerns given the fact that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
