More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the body that controls the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be built to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some worries due to the fact that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell 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 transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
