More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the organization that administrates the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be developed to be accessed without problems 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 .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some questions considering the fact that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
