More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that operates the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special rules. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be created to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation 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), and so on.
The rules have raised some questions given that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open 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 created in such a way as to be viewed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can secure a dot 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 obtain its EPP transfer code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
