More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that operates the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be designed to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have raised some concerns taking into consideration that the universal domain is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this should 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 dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP code from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
