Choosing a mobile domain name

One of the hardest parts of building a mobile site is choosing what you’re going to call it. Not only do you have to choose a cool name for your URL, you also need to choose how you’re going to signify that it’s a mobile site.

The options are.

  • m.
  • .mobi
  • .wap
  • .mobile
  • .wireless

Standard practice for the Mobile Web is using the m subdomain. It’s short, so you don’t need to type in too many characters, it’s well used, and there are more sites using it than any of the other choices.

If you are going to use assets from your standard website (images, xml, or whatever), then just add a "mobile" folder in your root folder and add there your mobile version.
