Boost business with a high-performing mobile website

Please see below for answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about HostPapa goMobi and mobile websites.
Will this replace my desktop website, or be an addition to it?
While your existing website is aimed at giving a full and comprehensive picture of your business, a goMobi mobile site allows you to deliver immediate access to what matters most when on the go. The two sites are complimentary and work together to make sure your customers are getting the most appropriate experience for their context and their device. If you do not yet have a desktop site and are maybe daunted by the prospect of having to build one, goMobi offers a real easy way to get up and running with a website that will work on both PCs and mobile phones.
How is my goMobi mobile site built?
When you sign up for goMobi, you get access to the goMobi Setup Assistant. With it, your site can be built in minutes and edited whenever you wish. Another great feature of your goMobi site is that some of your desktop website’s content may already be populated on your goMobi site - such as your telephone number, address, logo, etc.
How much time will I need to set up my mobile website?
Your goMobi site can be set up in minutes. Even before your first use of the Setup Assistant, goMobi is at work to make the process fast and easy.
Does goMobi require a .mobi domain name?
No, goMobi does not require a .mobi domain name. goMobi can be activated on ANY 2nd level or 3rd level domain.
I already own a domain name; can I use it for goMobi instead of getting another one?
Yes. HostPapa can easily help you point your domain to your goMobi site.
Can I add multiple domains to point to my goMobi site?
Yes. Just let HostPapa know which domains you want to point to your goMobi site and we’ll take care of the rest. Make sure that you update the DNS settings of the domains you want to use (if they do not reside with HostPapa).
I already own a domain name, but it is with another registrar; what do I need to do to use it?
You will need to make changes to the domain’s DNS settings and set up a CNAME record which must point to lb.goMobi.info. Please contact HostPapa for further instructions.
What is included with my goMobi website?
Your goMobi website’s package includes, among other things:
- Hosting of the goMobi site
- Mobile ready features
- Unlimited access to the Setup Assistant to modify your site
What languages are available?
The goMobi Setup Assistant tool is available in the following languages: English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Dutch, and Chinese (Simplified).
- Sites can be created in any language.
- Site visitors can translate the mobile site into 30+ languages.
Does goMobi provide analytics?
The Setup Assistant has a custom analytics tool that can track traffic. You also have the option to add Google Analytics to your mobile site.
Does goMobi work on all mobile devices?
With a variety of interface templates, goMobi delivers a great experience not only on smartphones but on any mobile device which helps increase conversions.
How does goMobi help to increase a site's visibility in mobile search engines?
The goMobi site is built using good practice recommendations, which include creation of a sitemap, well defined page titles and descriptions, optimized site structure for navigation, good URL structure, optimized robots.txt, and site submission to directories.
In addition, you can provide keywords for your business, which help search engines rank your site's relevance to an end user's search request. Links to social network sites will also assist in this process.
Why should I have a mobile site?
Recent studies show that the mobile web is the place to be: 43% of consumers use their browser to access the Internet on their phone, and 68% of consumers indicated that if they knew a website had a 'made-for-mobile' version, they would make a point to visit it over the standard website.
Of mobile users that had a bad experience on a website (e.g. difficult navigation, display not optimized for the mobile device, etc.), 61% said they would not revisit the site. goMobi ensures that you aren't missing out on the growing mobile audience by offering a quick and easy tool to build your presence on the mobile web.
