More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the entity that operates the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be created to be accessed faultlessly 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 organization. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have induced some questions given the fact that 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 designed in such a way as to be accessed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
