Dot MOBI Domains
More and more people use mobile devices to access web content, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To meet this demand, the entity that operates the generic TLDs, ICANN, introduced the dot MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it should comply with specific restrictions. In other words, all .MOBI websites should be built to be opened 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 dot MOBI Registry. These incorporate 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 TLD is the only one that specifies what devices has to be able to open 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 created in such a way as to be opened by the majority of Internet browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given the fact that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can grab a dot MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also move it over to our company if you acquire its EPP code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
Dot MOBI Domains with TMWHosting
If you are looking for a new home for your .MOBI domains, the Domain Manager interface that we provide would be the perfect option. Being both convenient-to-use and fully featured, it enables you to have complete control over all domain administration aspects. You'll be able to edit all basic DNS settings with only a single click and edit the WHOIS details pertaining to all your domain names comfortably. If you have multiple domains, managing all of them from the exact same location is not just doable, but it's in fact really easy.
In addition, when you have a hosting account with us, you then are already aware that, besides the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel has a website management section too. Thus, it is possible to quickly move between the two, without the need to work with several Control Panels or to adjust to new interfaces.
