More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that regulates the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be developed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some worries given that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
