More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that operates the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be developed to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some concerns given the fact that the universal domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to 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 website should be built in such a way as to be opened by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can acquire a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
