More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that operates the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be built to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation 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), etc.
The regulations have raised some questions taking into consideration that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this has 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 browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
