Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the organization that oversees the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be viewed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some questions as the universal domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 web page should be created in such a way as to be viewed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not register domains directly, you can get a dot MOBI domain with any third-party company, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization key from your present 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.
Dot MOBI Domain Name Management with Quality Hosting Services
If you are searching for a new home for your .MOBI domains, the Domain Manager interface we supply is the best option. Being both intuitive and fully featured, it allows you to exert full control over all domain management aspects. You can change all crucial DNS settings with a click and modify the WHOIS data pertaining to your domains effortlessly. When you have multiple domains, managing all of them from the same location is not just doable, but it's in fact a piece of cake.
Additionally, when you have a hosting account with us, you then are already aware that, besides the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel includes a site management section too. In this way, it is possible to quickly move between the two, without the need to make use of several Control Panels or to adjust to new interfaces.
