More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the organization that administers the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be built to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have induced some concerns because the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 website should be created in such a way as to be accessed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
