More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that handles the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be built to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have induced some questions given the fact that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
