More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that handles the generic domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed 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 ought to be designed to be viewed 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 cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some worries as the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
