NetHosting prepares customers for mobile website conversion with tailored hosting support.
Orem, UT NetHosting, a leading provider of Cloud Hosting, Dedicated Hosting, VPS Hosting, and Virtual Hosting products, has opened its services to full mobile website support and conversion.
“Understanding that a mobile presence is fast becoming the norm for websites today, NetHosting seeks to equip customers with the knowledge and ability to take advantage of the increasing benefits of developing a mobile website,” stated Mr. Lane Livingston, CEO of NetHosting.
Citing Google’s recent announcement that mobile website and landing page optimization will be a significant new factor in mobile ad campaigns through Google AdWords, Mr. Livingston emphasized the importance of converting to mobile now.
“It’s interesting to reflect that in years past, a growing percentage of holiday shopping has been accomplished in the comfort of home offices as opposed to community malls,” said Mr. Livingston, “and we’re going to see a great shift toward mobile shopping this holiday season and in years to come. This push by Google to convert to mobile is as timely as it is smart.”
Converting a website to mobile is a simple process designed to streamline webpage viewing and interaction via a handheld device. When customers access a bare-bones mobile version of any website, all information is expected to be upfront and viewable as well as all action buttons to be immediately clickable, a fact which Google corroborates by reporting that 61% of users are unlikely to return to a website they had trouble accessing from their phone.
Mr. Livingston concluded by saying, “As a great majority of our customers are online retailers, this trend of purchasing by mobile device is going to make a significant impact on the way they do business. Establishing an effective mobile presence now, with capable hosting support, is an imperative step for these customers to make toward competing in an increasingly mobile world.”
