Enabling Mobile Device Compatibility for your .COM, .NET

edited January 2012 in Domain Names
The Verisign MobileView service is a quick and simple way to create a mobile-friendly version for your .COM and .NET website. Upon enabling this service, your website would display as simple icons on any mobile device. These icons would display essential information pertaining to your website such as location, products, phone, e-mail.

If a mobile device user visits your website (such as yousitename.com) from a mobile device, then they will automatically be redirected to a sub-domain of your existing domain name (such as m.yoursitesname.com). This allows your mobile users an experience similar to desktop users.

Setting up your website's mobile version does not take much effort from your side and can be set up in minutes. The content of this new website gets picked up directly from your existing .COM, .NET website.

To Add a DNS CNAME Record for your Domain Name

To allow the mobile version of your .COM, .NET website to be redirected to the Verisign MobileView servers, you need to add a CNAME Record as follows:
m.domain-name.com CNAME mbv-web.verisign-grs.com

Example:

For the website yoursitesname.com, the CNAME Record needs to be set as:
m.yoursitesname.com CNAME mbv-web.verisign-grs.com

To Setup Mobile Device Detection on your Website

To allow your website to recognize if your website is being viewed on a mobile device and then redirect your website visitor to your new mobile website, you need to insert any one of the following code snippets typically in the <head>, depending upon the existing web application used by your .COM, .NET website:

JS Script 1: Call this script in the <body> as detailed below:
&lt;body onload=&quot;browserDetection()&quot;&gt;

C# Script 2
.NET Script 3
JSP Script 4
