More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that manages the gTLDs, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be developed to be viewed correctly 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 dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have raised some concerns considering the fact that the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 website should be designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the .MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can register 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 code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
