More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that oversees the generic domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be built to be viewed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some questions as the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open a website and the way in which this should 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 viewed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, 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. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
