.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that supervises the universal top-level domain name extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the concept behind this extension is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be built to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a site is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The requirements have induced some concerns taking into consideration that the top-level extension is the only one that specifies what devices must be able to access a website and the way in which this should happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be built in such a way as to be accessed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into consideration that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can obtain a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer key from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
.MOBI Domains with Grand Island Web Hosting
If you are looking for a new home for your .MOBI domain names, the Domain Manager interface that we offer you is a great option. Being both easy-to-work-with and fully featured, it enables you to have full control over all domain administration tasks. You can edit all essential DNS settings with only a mouse-click and edit the WHOIS info associated with all of your domain names without difficulty. When you have several domain names, controlling all of them from the same place is not just possible, but it's in fact pretty simple.
In addition, when you have a hosting account with us, then you are already aware of the fact that, aside from the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel features a site management section as well. In this way, you'll be able to easily switch between the two, and never have to work with separate Control Panels or to get familiar with different interfaces.
