.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To fulfill this demand, the body that administrates the gTLDs, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this TLD is that all websites that use it are required to comply with specific terms. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be designed to be accessed flawlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the .MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have raised some worries given that the universal top-level domain name 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 designed in such a way as to be accessed by most Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can buy a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization key from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to handle your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel.
.MOBI Domain Management with D3 Web Host
If you are looking for a new home for your .MOBI domains, the Domain Manager interface we offer you would be the perfect choice. Being both intuitive and fully featured, it allows you to have complete control over all domain name administration tasks. You can change all the basic DNS settings with just a mouse-click and update the WHOIS info associated with any of your domain names effortlessly. When you have more than one domains, controlling all of them from the exact same place isn't just doable, it's actually easy.
In addition, if you have a hosting account here, then you are already aware that, besides the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel includes a site management section as well. Thus, you'll be able to seamlessly move between the two, and never have to use several Control Panels or to get familiar with new interfaces.
