More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that supervises the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some concerns as the top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 opened by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
