More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that regulates the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established 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 need to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be developed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have raised some worries since the universal top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 opened by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
