More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that manages the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be developed to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some concerns because the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
