More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that operates the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be created to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some questions given that the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
