As with Webs.com’s full website building service, the idea behind the mobile site option is to keep things as simple as possible for small business owners and others who want to design professional sites easily, without having to code the sites themselves.

The mobile sites are also now compatible with more versions of Samsung, LG, Symbian, Nokia, Playstation and Nintendo DS devices, in addition to iOS, Android and BlackBerry.
For current Webs.com site owners with custom domains, mobile sites will be available at m.yourcompany.com.
If this type of service sounds familiar, it’s because Webs.com partner, DudaMobile, which provides the backend functionality for this new feature, recently launched its own self-serve platform that does much of the same thing.
