More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the organization that controls the generic domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI 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 should comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be designed to be opened without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some concerns taking into consideration that the universal domain is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry 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 active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
