More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the entity that manages the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be created to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some concerns because the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
