Dot MOBI Domains

More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the body that administers the generic TLDs, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be developed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement 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 have to do with how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.

The requirements have raised some questions taking into account that the top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices has to 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 site should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.

Given that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
