More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that manages the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be designed to be accessed without problems 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 organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have raised some concerns taking into account that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to open 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 built in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP transfer key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
