Dot MOBI Domain Names
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is steadily growing. To meet this demand, the body that handles the generic top-level domain extensions, ICANN, launched the .MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with certain requirements. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be built to be viewed properly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in cooperation with the .MOBI Registry. These incorporate how a page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have provoked some concerns considering that the universal top-level domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 built in such a way as to be opened by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Given that the .MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can order a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already active domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP code from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
Dot MOBI Domain Management with Data Host Africa
If you are searching for a new home for your .MOBI domains, the Domain Manager interface that we offer you would be a great choice. Being both convenient-to-use and fully featured, it enables you to exert full control over all domain management aspects. You are able to modify all of the crucial DNS settings with only a mouse-click and edit the WHOIS info associated with all of your domain names without any difficulty. For those who have more than one domain names, managing them from the same place isn't just possible, it's actually a piece of cake.
Additionally, when you have a hosting account here, you then know that, besides the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel includes a website management section too. This way, you are able to quickly switch between the two, without the need to use various Control Panels or to adjust to new interfaces.
