More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that operates the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be created to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some questions taking into consideration that the universal top-level extension 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 the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, 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 authorization key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
