More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that manages the universal domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be created to be viewed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some concerns given that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can order a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
