More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that administers the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be developed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some concerns due to the fact that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 web page should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can acquire a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
