.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is constantly increasing. To meet this demand, the organization that administers the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI 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 rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be built to be viewed correctly 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 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 requirements have provoked some concerns due to the fact that the generic top-level domain 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 website should be built in such a way as to be opened by most web browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can reserve a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
.MOBI Domain Names with Loyalty Hosting
The Domain Manager interface is a crucial part of the Web Hosting Control Panel. As such, it's designed to be quick and time and effort saving for both experienced website owners and hosting novices. It gives you the full set of domain controls, meaning that you'll have full control over your domain's DNS and WHOIS settings. What's more, it will help you to control multiple domain names from the very same place without difficulty - you aren't limited to one domain per Control Panel.
And, when you have a hosting account here, you're able to perform both site administration as well as domain administration tasks. You don't need to log into other Control Panels or switch interfaces.
