More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that manages the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be designed to be accessed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some worries given the fact that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open 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 designed in such a way as to be viewed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP code 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.
