More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that regulates the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be developed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some worries since the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 website should be built in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
