More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that oversees the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be designed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have raised some worries given that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
