Default Hosting Mobile websites

I'm going to ask a dumb question but I really want to know. Ok, do you host a mobile website on the same host as the website your building the mobile website for?

Ideally, yes. Use a subdomain of something like m.whateverwebsite.com

No! I'm not, I have my website that offer mobile website design and a seperate hosting account to host my clients site, I don't even bother with subdomains (what if you have 100+ to create? Time consuming)

1 - I get a short .mobi domain , shortest possible and easy to remember.
2 - for each clients I create a folder so if you have WP as your mobile site builder it's easier to manage, even if it's Html or PHP

My client mobile site link will look like: http//mobhost.mobi/clientbusinessname

Sorry, but if I have to attempt to search for a mobile version of a site from my phone or mobile device, I'm not going to waste my time.

The site should auto-detect the browser and redirect accordingly. Most large websites do exactly this. Just my opinion though and I really don't see the point in registering a completely different domain just for a mobile version of the site.

It's unclear about what exactly he wants to do with hosting mobile websites. But if it's for 1 client and he can have access to his client site then yes hosting on a subdomain from his client site will be best but if he has many clients and can't usually access to set a redirect script and want to host himself then my option is best. He will have full control over updates,...

If it takes you longer to create a subdomain than it does to register a new domain, create the addon domain, etc, then you are doing something very wrong.

Subdomains are much quicker to create. It's a 20 second process.

Will I'm sure I'll go faster than you.
I go cpanel and use wordpress auto install, I choose directory name then click install for each WP install.

If I have to do subdomains, I will have to create one, wait for dns parse (sometime it takes time) then go to cpanel and install WP.

I'm not doing any wrong, I can assure you! I've been testing all things and knows the pros and cons.

P.S.: he is using WP for his mobile sites just like me, I have WP and non-WP for mobile.

Now if he wants to install a mobile site on his client site then best option will be in subdomain in his client hosting space.
