More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that administrates the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI 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 must comply with special requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be designed to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have raised some concerns given that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to 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 the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
