More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the establishment that administers the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be developed to be opened flawlessly 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. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some questions considering that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you obtain its EPP key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
