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 oversees the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be designed to be opened faultlessly 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 incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some questions because the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to 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 most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
