More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that operates the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be viewed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have induced some concerns since the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 site should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
