More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the body that administers the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be built to be accessed 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 collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some questions as the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices need 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 web page should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can obtain a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
