More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the entity that supervises the universal domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be developed to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have raised some worries considering the fact that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 site should be built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
