You business owners out there may be telling yourself , “I have to get my business ready for the Black Friday rush or Cyber Monday crowd”.  Make no mistake people you can never have to much time and not enough to do.  You feel you have put enough time and money into doing your websites now they want to tell you that you have to build another that will be mobile compatible!  Are you kidding me!

Well I have an answer for you try using a mobilizer this little piece of software is amazing, it will take your site from desktop ready to mobile ready in a matter of minutes.  Don’t you just love technology.


Now that you know that you do not have to go through the arduous task of building another website all you need now is to purchase a .mobi extension of your current domain name.  Now you may be asking yourself why would I purchase a .mobi if I already have a .com.  Let me give you the definition of what a .mobi is.  A .mobi Web site is just a Web site accessible from Internet browsers on any device, including desktop computers.  But, inorder to register a .mobi domain name, a site must meet specific requirements that make it easy to view and use from mobile devices such as smart phones and personal digital assistants.

A .Mobi Web Site Does:

  • Provides preselected default values where possible
  • Specifies Automatically senses device type and responds with an appropriate page
  • Allows the viewer to reach the site without typing “www” in the URL
  • Allows the user to choose how to interact by linking to the full site
  • Keeps navigation consistent
  • Includes access keys for frequently used functionality
  • Clearly identifies the target and file format of each link
  • Minimizes external links
  • Displays the most relevant information at the top of the page
  • Organizes documents so they may be read without style sheets
  • Keeps the number of keystrokes to a minimum
  • a default text entry mode, language and/or input format

A .Mobi Does Not:

  • Use frames
  • Rely on cookies
  • Rely on support for font-related styling
  • Use nested tables
  • Rely on embedded objects for script
  • Use markup to redirect pages automatically
  • Use pop-ups or change the current window without informing the user
  • Automatically refresh pages without offering a way to stop it

Thanks to our ever popular friends at HOSTWAY.COM for providing this thorough brake down of what the difference between a .mobi and your .com would be.  This will let your audience know that you have a mobile presence, putting you a step ahead of most of the archaic business owners out there now.  I know we all could stand the attention of the elusive Thanksgiving and Christmas crowd, but remember you have to go where they are going which now is their mobile devices.thumbnail.aspx
