More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that oversees the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be developed to be viewed faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some questions considering that the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can order a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
