More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that supervises the generic domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the concept behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific terms. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be built to be viewed properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have induced some worries given that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 opened by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the .MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can secure a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar firm. 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 Domains with Nomad Coin Services
If you are looking for a new home for your .MOBI domains, the Domain Manager interface we supply is an excellent option. Being both convenient-to-use and fully featured, it enables you to exert complete control over all domain management duties. You'll be able to edit all of the essential DNS settings with only a mouse-click and modify the WHOIS details pertaining to any of your domain names easily. For those who have multiple domain names, controlling them from the same place is not just possible, but it is actually very simple.
Additionally, when you have a hosting account here, then you are already aware of the fact that, besides the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel features a site management section as well. Thus, you'll be able to quickly switch between the two, and never have to make use of various Control Panels or to get familiar with different interfaces.
