More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the body that handles the universal top-level domains, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some concerns taking into account that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to 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 designed in such a way as to be accessed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
