More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the body that manages the universal domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites ought to be developed to be opened correctly 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. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have provoked some concerns because the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, 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 current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
