Create a mobile optimised website

With IONOS MyWebsite you can create a professional homepage for both desktop and tablet PCs, as well as an optimised version especially for smartphones.

Why is it important to create a mobile website?

Smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices are steadily gaining popularity. More and more people use a mobile device to access the internet. It is often quicker to look something up using your smartphone or tablet than to start up your computer. The technology for mobile internet like 3G or LTE is constantly improving too, making surfing the internet on the go an attractive option. As a website owner, it is important to adapt to this trend quickly by creating a mobile version of your page.

Benefits of mobile optimised websites

Mobile optimised websites increase user-friendliness

Creating a mobile version of your website has multiple advantages when it comes to user friendliness. For example, your content will be adapted to the screen size of the user's device, be it a smartphone, tablet or laptop. Text, pictures and navigation are all automatically adjusted to the right size. Another reason to optimise websites for mobile devices is that it decreases loading times.

A mobile version improves Google rankings

Another reason that creating a mobile website is search engine ranking, from Google for example. Search engines recognise the rapidly growing trend for mobile internet access. Since the latest Google update, websites that do not have a mobile optimised version are ranked lower than those without. This in turns affects their visibility and reach, as they are visited less frequently. In order to maintain a high ranking or to increase it, it is very important to make sure that your website is mobile friendly.

Creating a mobile website

FAQ – Frequently asked questions

Every year, mobile internet access increases and more people want to know how to make their own mobile website for free. The use of smartphones and tablets is particularly quick and easy. There are a multitude of devices available today all with different display sizes, which present website owners with a new challenge. The displays of mobile devices are significantly smaller than computer screens, which makes technical innovations necessary to ensure that websites can be viewed properly. IONOS MyWebsite allows you to create a mobile website with the click of a mouse. The settings can be changed and your website customised at any time. Responsive web design optimises your content for the respective device. Tables with multiple columns may look well-structured on a computer screen, but involve a lot of scrolling on smartphone screens. With our responsive design, your content is tailored to the display size of the device. With IONOS MyWebsite, integrating the latest trends into your web project is child's play.

Design is without a doubt one of the most important aspects of a website. It provides the external packaging for the content and plays a decisive part in making a strong first impression on the user. Furthermore the design can influence the functionality of the website. With the IONOS MyWebsite free mobile site builder you can choose between many different design templates, which you can then customise according to your taste and the requirements of your website. Many templates available to you as a new customer are suitable for a responsive layout. If you select the relevant option, the content of your page will be optimised for various devices. Whether smartphone, tablet or desktop — your page is displayed perfectly. Creating a website version for mobile devices is no problem with IONOS.

Yes. If you have been a IONOS customer for a while and set up your website before smartphones and tablets became commonplace, you may have chosen a template that isn't responsive, leading to problems when displaying the page on a mobile device. The consequence: the user has to resort to scrolling and zooming to view the relevant information. Changing to a responsive layout is absolutely no problem, simply choose one of our new templates in the mobile friendly website builder and your page will appear in its new design and is immediately optimised for mobile devices. Only a few of our older web apps may have some complications as they are not yet supported. These may not be displayed after changing to the responsive layout.

Ease of use is extremely important for websites and an important marker of quality. The mobile version is no different. Proper displaying of the content and fully functional navigation are the foundations of a good user experience. If visitors are happy with your website functionality, it significantly lowers the bounce rate and increases time spent on the website. The bounce rate indicates how many users leave the page shortly after visiting it. A low bounce rate and high retention time positively influence Google ranking — the page is ranked higher on the search results pages. Intuitive handling is an important factor both for user satisfaction and to improve ranking, so make sure you create a mobile version of your website with the mobile website builder.
