Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the organization that operates the universal top-level domains, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be designed to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some concerns as the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to open a website and the way in which this must 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 most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Since the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can purchase a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer code from your current registrar company. 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.
Dot MOBI Domains with Web Hosting Indy
If you are searching for a new home for your .MOBI domain names, the Domain Manager interface that we offer you would be a very good choice. Being both intuitive and fully featured, it enables you to have complete control over all domain management tasks. You can edit all of the essential DNS settings with a single click and modify the WHOIS info pertaining to your domains without any difficulty. If you have multiple domain names, managing all of them from the very same location isn't just doable, it's actually really easy.
Also, if you have a hosting account with us, then you are already aware that, aside from the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel features a website management section as well. In this way, it is possible to quickly switch between the two, and never have to work with several Control Panels or to adapt to different interfaces.
