(The Hosting News) – Web hosts interested in adding more mobile website options via their cPanel control panels now have just that. On Monday, dotMobi, the company behind popular mobile website platform goMobi announced the application’s availability through cPanel services.
Among a variety of functions, goMobi allows users to build mobile sites, manage content, add widgets, and examine analytics.
“We are pleased to have goMobi in the suite of tools cPanel users can offer their clients. Web hosting companies are seeing a daily increase in the demand for a solid, but simple, mobile Web solution. And that is exactly what dotMobi offers with its goMobi service,” commented cPanel VP of Operations Aaron Phillips in a press release.
“It’s a cost-effective way for any business to create and manage a mobile website while giving hosting companies a profitable way to help those customers,” Phillips continued.
Without a doubt, users connecting to the internet via mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets are increasing in numbers.
dotMobi COO Eileen O’Sullivan discussed the importance of businesses having a mobile presence. “Mobile has changed how customers interact with businesses. Only businesses that are able to provide a great mobile experience will be successful in this new market. We are delighted to be partnering with cPanel as we roll out goMobi to the hosting industry,” O’Sullivan stated.
Just earlier this year, in September, a study conducted by the International Data Corporation (IDC) expected mobile internet access to outnumber wired access by the year 2015.
Meanwhile, there are also expanded capabilities that come with goMobi’s inclusion on cPanel’s platform. Such added functions include “the ability to create custom forms,” embedding of videos, additional templates and more.
In addition to that, there’s the platform’s compatibility with m-commerce. Such solutions account for popular online transaction platforms Google Checkout and PayPal. For more information on the matter, view a press release by dotMobi here (mtld.mobi).
