More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that administers the gTLDs, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have induced some worries taking into consideration that the generic top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this must happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
