More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that administers the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be developed to be opened properly 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 .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some concerns given that the universal domain name 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 website should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can grab a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
