More and more people use mobile devices to access online content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently increasing. To meet this demand, the establishment that administrates the generic domain extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the intention behind this TLD is that all websites that use it need to comply with specific requirements. In other words, all .MOBI websites are required to be developed to be viewed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” drawn by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These incorporate how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some worries taking into consideration that the universal extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access a website and the way in which this has to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a web page should be built in such a way as to be viewed by most browsers and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering the fact that the dot MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can purchase a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you acquire its EPP transfer key from your current registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.
.MOBI Domains with SynNetHost
If you are searching for a new home for your .MOBI domains, the Domain Manager interface that we offer would be a superb choice. Being both user-friendly and fully featured, it enables you to exert complete control over all domain name management aspects. You can change all the essential DNS settings with a click and customize the WHOIS details pertaining to all of your domains without difficulty. If you have several domains, managing them from the same place isn't just possible, but it is in fact super easy.
Additionally, for those who have a hosting account with us, then you already know that, apart from the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel includes a website management section as well. This way, you are able to easily switch between the two, without having to work with separate Control Panels or to adapt to different interfaces.
