More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that handles the generic domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be opened 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 cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have provoked some questions considering that the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 built in such a way as to be viewed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can buy 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 company if you get its EPP transfer authorization code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
