(The Hosting News) – Website creation on the mobile web may be in for a change. Today telecommunications company AT&T announced the launch of a service aimed at assisting small businesses with making and managing mobile websites.
Called “AT&T Mobile Website Hosting,” the cloud service allows users to create mobile sites viewable across various smartphone devices.
Commenting on the matter, AT&T VP of Small Business Product Management Ebrahim Keshavarz stated, “Having a website is crucial for small businesses, which need to be accessible to their customers anytime and anywhere.”
“With Mobile Website Hosting, we’re giving small businesses an easy and affordable way to literally convert their websites into mobile sites,” he continued.
Particular features of the platform include automatic updating and syncing, click-to-call, various design templates, analytics, and more.
In recent years, website viewing from mobile devices has increased due to the rising popularity of smartphones that allow users to access the internet. AT&T says that the minimum monthly price for the service is $12.00 dollars. However, prices vary depending on the plan.
Meanwhile, AT&T has recently been in the news for something else. Just late last month, the U.S. Justice Department announced that it would move to block AT&T’s attempted acquisition of T-Mobile (The move was made due to antitrust concerns). AT&T had announced plans to acquire the rival mobile provider in March.
