More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the body that oversees the gTLDs, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be built to be opened without problems by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have raised some questions as the generic top-level 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 created in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer key from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
