More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that supervises the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be developed to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement 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 have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have raised some concerns taking into consideration that the universal extension 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 site should be built in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
