Setting Up Custom Domain Name

We use Dreamhost and creating a custom domain on our site was easy. Simply go to “Manage Domains”, then select the “DNS” of the domain name you want to edit. Add a custom DNS record to that domain name (using CNAME) and in a few minutes your mobile site will display from your domain name.

Change DNS Settings

Why m? Because that seems to be the most common subdomain that mobile users look for to find the mobile version of your website.

Customise Your Mobile Site

Then you can set up php redirection code to redirect mobile users to your mobile site, set up mobile site logos, customize your site CSS, add a logo and lots more to create a mobile friendly website.

You can also display your QOR code – is a bar code that can be scanned by most camera phones and read using a QR Code reader, which links to your MoFuse mobile site. Here is what our QOR code looks like.
