More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that regulates the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be built to be viewed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .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 rules have induced some worries because the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can register a .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 firm if you get its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
