Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that oversees the generic domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be designed to be accessed without problems 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 incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The rules have provoked some concerns due to the fact that the generic top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to open a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be created in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry organization does not sell domains directly, you can register a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you get its EPP code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
Dot MOBI Domains with Indi.Host - Best Web Hosting Provider
If you are looking for a new home for your .MOBI domain names, the Domain Manager interface we provide would be a great choice. Being both easy-to-work-with and fully featured, it allows you to exert complete control of all domain name management aspects. It is possible to edit all the important DNS settings with just a single click and update the WHOIS info related to all your domain names without difficulty. If you have many domains, controlling all of them from the same place is not only possible, but it's in fact quite simple.
Additionally, for those who have a hosting account with us, you then know that, besides the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel has a site management section too. Thus, it is possible to effortlessly move between the two, without having to make use of numerous Control Panels or to adapt to new interfaces.
