.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the organization 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 extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all .MOBI websites have to be created to be opened correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have provoked some concerns in view of the fact that the generic top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices has 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 web page should be built in such a way as to be opened by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the dot MOBI Registry organization does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your present registrar. 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 interface.
.MOBI Domain Management with registratudominio
If you are looking for a new home for your .MOBI domains, the Domain Manager interface that we provide would be the best option. Being both easy-to-work-with and fully featured, it enables you to exert full control of all domain management tasks. It is possible to edit all crucial DNS settings with a single click and modify the WHOIS information associated with all of your domain names without any difficulty. If you have many domains, controlling them from the same place is not only doable, it's in fact very easy.
Additionally, for those who have a hosting account with us, you then are already aware that, apart from the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel includes a web site management section too. This way, you can effortlessly switch between the two, without having to work with several Control Panels or to get familiar with different interfaces.
