More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that manages the generic domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be designed 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 partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some concerns considering the fact that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
