More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the body that regulates the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be created to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some questions considering the fact that the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access a website and the way in which this should 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 Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
