More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the organization that manages the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites must be created 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 partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some worries because the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access 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 designed in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can acquire a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
