More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the entity that supervises the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be developed to be viewed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot 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 questions taking into consideration that the universal top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered 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 manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
