More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that oversees the universal domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be created to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have raised some concerns since the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current 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 interface.
