Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the organization that controls the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites are required to be built to be accessed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the .MOBI Registry. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have provoked some questions in view of the fact that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices need 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 built in such a way as to be viewed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP transfer key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
Dot MOBI Domain Name Management with HostRing
If you are searching for a new home for your .MOBI domains, the Domain Manager interface we supply is a very good choice. Being both easy-to-work-with and fully featured, it allows you to have total control over all domain administration tasks. You can edit all important DNS settings with just a click and update the WHOIS data pertaining to all of your domains without any difficulty. When you have many domain names, controlling them from the same location is not only possible, it's actually a piece of cake.
Also, when you have a hosting account here, you then know that, besides the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel includes a web site management section too. This way, it is possible to quickly move between the two, without having to use several Control Panels or to get familiar with different interfaces.
