More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that regulates the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be designed to be viewed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some questions because the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
