More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the body that regulates the universal top-level domain name 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 should comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be developed to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some concerns since the generic 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 should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can book a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
