Mobilize Your Site With goMobi

If you’ve looked at your web site statistics lately you may have noticed a pretty dramatic increase in visitors on mobile devices. With 45% of American adults owning smartphones, the increase shouldn’t be a surprise.

Maybe you have been thinking that it’s time for you to provide a mobile version of your site. If so, you’re absolutely right. But if you’re like me, you don’t relish the idea of writing the responsive code for a mobile version of your site — or worse yet, a mobile version of several sites.

Well, as it happens, we have just started to offer something that may make your life a lot easier: goMobi.

goMobi is a mobile web site builder that provides a way to create a mobile version of your site with a ton of great, essential mobile features, all with a few mouse clicks.

Okay, there are more than a few clicks involved, but it’s ridiculously easy to use.

Your mobile site is hosted on goMobi’s servers, so there’s nothing to upload or configure. All you do is drop a few lines of automatically generated code into your main web site that detects mobile visitors and redirects them to the mobile version of your site.

It’s pretty cool, and we’ve partnered with goMobi to make it extra-affordable. Check out the goMobi page on our site, or order in your WinHost Control Panel right now.

Added bonus: you can buy goMobi service for a site that we host or ala carte, for use on a site hosted anywhere.

They were surprisingly accurate in their predictions (even if the film does suffer from mid-century gender stereotypes).



The Internet as it was in 1996

I know that when you woke up this morning you thought to yourself, “I wonder what a 1996 instructional video about the Internet would look like?”

Oh, you didn’t?

Well, we have one for you anyway.

Enjoy as a fake fancy archaeologist guides you through the fascinating online world that exists right at the tip of your virtual fingers. Wow!

Kinect Shopping Cart

I think the Kinect is really cool. But combining one with a shopping cart? I don’t think this is going to fly. I’m sorry, I don’t need a shopping cart to follow me and tell me what I can and cannot buy.

The checking out part is cool though…



Microsoft’s latest video jab at Google

The love affair between Microsoft and Google continues. In this installment, Google Apps comes under fire from the Microsoft Business Productivity folks (the online Office suite that competes with Google Apps).

Photoshop is one of the most popular image tools and is my goto tool when I need to work on images. I was on the floor when I saw this:



Circle us in GooglePlus – a new social frontier

A lot of you have joined our circles on GooglePlus, and we’re excited about what we may be able to do over there. It might seem like overkill, what with Facebook, Twitter, the WinHost forum, this blog – now another spot to occupy?

The thing is, we enjoy connecting with you in all of these different areas. We’re always anxious to hear what everyone has to say and see what we can contribute.

We don’t have the star power of these guys, but we’re trying:
