Hosting Mobile websites

by 8 comments
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.

      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.
