More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that supervises the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it should comply with special terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be designed to be accessed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some worries due to the fact that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 site should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can secure a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
