More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that manages the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be built to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some questions considering the fact that the universal domain is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 site should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
