More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that operates the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with special regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be built to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some worries as the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
