More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that handles the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be created to be viewed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .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 induced some worries because 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 website should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar firm. 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.
