More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that oversees the gTLDs, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with certain terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be designed to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some concerns in view of the fact that the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your current registrar company. 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 tool.
