More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that regulates the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be built to be accessed without problems 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 organization. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some worries taking into consideration that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open a website and the way in which this must 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 opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
