More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that controls the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be designed to be opened without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some concerns as the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can order a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
