.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To meet this demand, the entity that operates the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, established the .MOBI extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain name extension is that all websites that use it have to comply with certain rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites should be developed to be opened properly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created 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), etc.
The regulations have provoked some questions in view of the fact that the top-level domain is the only one that specifies what devices need to 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 accessed by the majority of browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
As the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can get a .MOBI domain with any third-party provider, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer authorization code from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
.MOBI Domain Management with Adjare-Boateng Hosting
If you are looking for a new home for your .MOBI domains, the Domain Manager interface we supply would be a great choice. Being both easy to use and fully featured, it allows you to exert total control of all domain administration tasks. It is possible to modify all essential DNS settings with a single click and modify the WHOIS data pertaining to any of your domain names comfortably. For those who have several domains, controlling them from the exact same location is not only possible, but it is in fact a piece of cake.
Also, for those who have a hosting account here, then you are already aware that, apart from the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel has a site management section too. In this way, you'll be able to easily move between the two, and never have to make use of separate Control Panels or to adapt to different interfaces.
