More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that handles the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be designed to be accessed without problems 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 incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some questions considering that the top-level domain name extension 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 web page should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
