More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that administrates the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be built to be opened flawlessly 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 .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some concerns considering that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP code from your current registrar firm. 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 interface.
