.MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile devices to access the Internet, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is ever increasing. To fulfill this demand, the entity that operates the universal domain name extensions, ICANN, launched the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were allowed in September 2006, and the notion behind this domain extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites must be developed to be accessed faultlessly by mobile devices in accordance with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” formulated by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in collaboration with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These involve how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The restrictions have provoked some worries given that the TLD is the only one that specifies what devices should 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 designed in such a way as to be opened by the majority of browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Because the .MOBI Registry organization does not register domains directly, you can reserve a dot MOBI domain with any third-party firm, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you get its EPP key from your current registrar firm. If you do that, you’ll be able to manage your domain(s) and web hosting account from a single place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.

The Domain Manager is, in fact, a basic part of the Web Hosting Control Panel.
