More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that operates the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be developed to be viewed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have raised some concerns considering that the generic TLD 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be viewed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
