More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that administrates the generic TLDs, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be built to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some worries given the fact that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
