More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the organization that administrates the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be designed to be accessed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some worries as the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can purchase 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 company if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
