Q?

What are the benefits of a mobile website to my customers?

A.

Studies show that visitors who access a full website on their mobile phones complain about how much time and data is required to load the site and how hard it is to find the information they need. Most will abandon the site and look for a competitor with a more mobile-friendly website.

Q?

Does the mobile website require a .mobi domain name?

A.

No, a .mobi domain name is not required. A third level domain will be provided automatically for you. However, if you purchase a mobile website any domain can be used with your site.

Q?

I already have a PC website. Can I direct customers from that website to my mobile site?

A.

Yes, you can automatically redirect mobile devices from your desktop site to your mobile website. Please see the manual for more information.

Q?

How are mobile websites different than PC sites?

A.

Mobile websites are built to exploit the special characteristics of mobile phones and mobile users to provide the best possible experience to users. Besides adapting to the smaller screen of a mobile phone, they are also made easier to navigate using touch or a keypad and provide more direct access to the information that a customer is more likely to need while on the go.

Q?

Why do I need a mobile website?

A.

Most websites will not work on a mobile phone. They are slow to load, hard to view and do not offer the right kind of experience for customers on-the-go. By 2013, there will be an estimated 4.5 billion mobile phone users worldwide using their phones to surf the Internet and look for information and services. If your business is not on the mobile Web, your customers will not be able to find you.
