.MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the body that regulates 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 idea behind this TLD is that all websites that use it should comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites need to be created to be viewed faultlessly 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 .MOBI Registry. These involve how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The restrictions have induced some concerns as the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices ought 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 website should be created in such a way as to be accessed by most browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Taking into account that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can book a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.

The Domain Manager is, in fact, an important part of our Web Hosting Control Panel. Which means that you will be in a position to control not only your domain names, but also your websites, without actually leaving the Control Panel, on the sole condition that you have a hosting account here.
