More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that supervises the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI 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 have to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be created to be accessed correctly 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. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some worries due to the fact that the universal domain is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
