    Re: I want to setup my website for mobile view as m.mydomain.com and for desktop www.mydomain.com

    Hi @Sam33n@fxabkader124@ayaan-mizan@CarlMax, and @JohnMuller44,

     

    Welcome to the Community!

    The subdomain of "m" was originally used for websites that were not dynamic and would not work well on a mobile device. The web-designer would then design a 2nd custom site to fit the mobile device, using the same (or different, if desired) content for the end viewer. As noted in a previous reply, this action is no longer necessary - due to advances in programming - as the site appears well on both computer and mobile.

     

    If you still wish to have this available for your customers, you can set it up in a shared hosting plan that will support more than one website (above an economy plan). You would have your primary domain (thebusiness.com) be the site for full viewing on a computer. [The "www" designation is just a CName host addition to direct back to the main IP address with an "@" as the "points to".]

     

    Then you can create the subdomain of m.thebusiness.com within the cPanel plan, assigning it to the folder that will hold the content of the mobile-designed website. 

     

    Hope this helps!

    Your website is already responsive, meaning it automatically adjusts to conform to the screen it's being viewed on.  This is the preferred method.

     

    The only reason to split it between a desktop and mobile site would be if you needed to present different content for those users, but it sounds like you do want them to access the same content.

    Go to your website on a mobile device.  How do you want it to be different than that?  If it's just the domain then I'd say that's just silly.

    Why?  Your main website is already set up for mobile viewing.

     

    With the example of Facebook, their main website is not set up for mobile viewing.  It's actually a different site that's served to mobile devices.
