More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that controls the universal top-level domains, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites ought to be built to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some questions due to the fact that the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access 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 built in such a way as to be viewed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer 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.
