More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the body that oversees the universal top-level domains, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be built to be accessed correctly 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 .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some concerns as the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 site should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can reserve 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 code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
