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 entity that regulates the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be designed to be opened 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 organization. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some questions as the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 site should be built in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
