More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that controls the generic domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with certain terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be built to be opened flawlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The regulations have provoked some concerns given that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to 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 most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
