.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that administers the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be designed to be accessed 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 cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have induced some questions taking into consideration that the universal domain 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 website should be created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Due to the fact that the .MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can book a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
.MOBI Domains with Host-4Less
If you are looking for a new home for your .MOBI domain names, the Domain Manager interface we provide would be a really good option. Being both user-friendly and fully featured, it allows you to exert total control of all domain name administration duties. You are able to update all basic DNS settings with a single click and edit the WHOIS info associated with all your domains without difficulty. For those who have multiple domain names, controlling them from the very same place is not just doable, but it's in fact very easy.
Furthermore, for those who have a hosting account here, then you are already aware of the fact that, aside from the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel includes a site management section as well. Thus, you are able to seamlessly move between the two, and never have to use different Control Panels or to adapt to new interfaces.
