More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that handles the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be designed to be accessed correctly 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. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have induced some questions as the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this has 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 viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
