More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that administrates the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be developed to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some concerns since the universal top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access a website and the way in which this must 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 browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization 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.
