More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To meet this demand, the entity that operates the generic TLDs, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with special requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be designed to be opened properly 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 restrictions have raised some worries considering the fact that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to 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 most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
