More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the entity that oversees the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be built to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised some worries since the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
