More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the body that administers the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot 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 have to comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be created to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation 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), and so on.
The rules have induced some concerns because the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
