More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that manages the universal top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name 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 are required to be developed to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some worries taking into account that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your current 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.
