More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that administrates the universal domain extensions, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI 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 special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be created to be viewed 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 cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have raised some worries given the fact that the universal top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this should 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 web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
