More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that regulates the universal top-level domains, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be built to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some concerns considering the fact that the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to 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 web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
