More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that supervises the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be built to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some concerns as the universal domain 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 designed in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
