More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the body that handles the universal domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be built to be opened without problems 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 .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some worries considering the fact that the universal top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
