More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that oversees the universal top-level domains, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be designed to be opened properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have induced some questions given that the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a site should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can order 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 company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
