Dot MOBI Domain Name Registrations
More and more people use mobile gadgets to access web content, so the demand for mobile-friendly websites is permanently growing. To fulfill this demand, the establishment that regulates the generic top-level extensions, ICANN, introduced the .MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were started in September 2006, and the idea behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with special rules. In other words, all dot MOBI websites need to be built to be opened faultlessly by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” created by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a website is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), and so on.
The regulations have raised some worries considering that the universal domain extension is the only one that specifies what devices should be able to access 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 web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
Considering that the dot MOBI Registry does not offer domains directly, you can register a dot MOBI domain with any 3rd-party company, such as ours. If you have an existing domain, you can also transfer it to our firm if you get its EPP code from your present registrar. If you do that, you’ll be able to control your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel interface.

All the important DNS controls of your domain will be just a mouse-click away. In addition, you can set up URL forwarding, again, with a single mouse-click. To top it all off, Server and Domain Name's Domain Manager has multiple domain management along with unlimited domain name parking options as well!
But that's not all! Anyone who has a hosting account with Server and Domain Name will forget all about logging in and out of different tools - they'll be able to manage all their domain names and sites at the same time by using Server and Domain Name's tailor-made Web Hosting Control Panel.
