(The Hosting News) – Most of the firms in United States neglect the needs of the clients of accessing their websites from mobiles, according to a research made by 1&1, a global leader in web hosting services. The study was made on 818 small to medium-sized companies; from these, 50% never checked their websites on Smartphone users. From the companies that have done that, 43% say that their website has a reduced appearance and functionality. 57% have not optimized their websites for mobile usage and have no plans to do this also.
As the screen is smaller on mobile devices, most of the websites may need a different version, adapted for mobile.
Oliver Mauss, CEO of 1&1 said: “Many websites have not yet reached the Smartphone age. As a result, small firms in particular can miss a massive opportunity. Businesses must ensure that when their website is viewed on a mobile, it loads promptly, functions correctly and comprises an attractive and fitting representation of them”.
