More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that manages the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain 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 have to comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be developed to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some concerns because the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 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.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
