More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that controls the generic TLDs, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be designed to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have raised some concerns in view of the fact that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be designed in such a way as to be opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar company. 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 tool.
