Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To fulfill this demand, the body that oversees the generic top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special restrictions. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be created to be viewed correctly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some questions as the generic top-level domain name extension is the only one that specifies what devices must 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 site should be designed in such a way as to be accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also move it over to our firm if you get its EPP transfer code from your present registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
Dot MOBI Domain Name Management with Point Host
If you are looking for a new home for your .MOBI domains, the Domain Manager interface we offer you would be a superb option. Being both convenient-to-use and fully featured, it enables you to exert full control of all domain name administration duties. You'll be able to modify all of the essential DNS settings with only a mouse-click and customize the WHOIS data pertaining to all your domains without any difficulty. For those who have several domain names, controlling all of them from the same location is not only possible, it's in fact a breeze.
Also, for those who have a hosting account here, you then are already aware that, aside from the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel features a site management section as well. Thus, you can quickly move between the two, without having to make use of several Control Panels or to adapt to different interfaces.
