More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that regulates the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it should comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be created to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in agreement 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 site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some questions taking into consideration that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open 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 built in such a way as to be opened by the majority of web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry organization 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 move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar firm.
