Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization that handles the universal domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be designed to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some questions considering that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can buy a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your current registrar. 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 interface.
