More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that regulates the generic domain extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it must comply with certain restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be designed to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The requirements have induced some worries given the fact that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices need to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be created in such a way as to be viewed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can book a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administrate your domain(s) and hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
.MOBI Domain Management with Triple Moons Design
If you are searching for a new home for your .MOBI domains, the Domain Manager interface we supply is the very best option. Being both convenient-to-use and fully featured, it allows you to have full control over all domain name administration duties. You can modify all the essential DNS settings with a single click and update the WHOIS info associated with your domains without difficulty. For those who have multiple domain names, controlling all of them from the very same place is not only possible, but it is in fact quite simple.
Also, if you have a hosting account here, you then are already aware of the fact that, aside from the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel includes a web site management section too. This way, you can quickly switch between the two, without the need to use several Control Panels or to adapt to different interfaces.
