More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that supervises the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be developed to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some questions since the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
