Web host control panel cPanel announced on Monday that the goMobi mobile website builder is now available via the cPanel platform. With this integration, cPanel web hosting companies can offer their customers access to the tool.
This news comes two weeks after cPanel announced the availability of email marketing platform CakeMail through its control panel.
As demand for mobile websites increases, web hosts can offer their customers a competitive advantage with a tool to build a simple mobile website.
According to cPanel, it is launching an enhanced version of goMobi, which offers a range of new templates, the ability to create custom forms, video content embedding and integration with m-commerce solutions like PayPal and Google Checkout.
“Mobile has changed how customers interact with businesses. Only businesses that are able to provide a great mobile experience will be successful in this new market. We are delighted to be partnering with cPanel as we roll out goMobi to the hosting industry,” Eileen O’Sullivan, COO of dotMobi said in a statement.
cPanel says that users can generate the mobile site using existing or new web content and add a range of updated features such as click to call, Google Maps integration, social networking integration and automated QR code creation.
goMobi sites can use any domain like .info or .mobi and will work on more than 7,500 models of web-enabled mobile devices and handsets.
“We are pleased to have goMobi in the suite of tools cPanel users can offer their clients. Web hosting companies are seeing a daily increase in the demand for a solid, but simple, mobile web solution,” Aaron Phillips, cPanel vice president of operations said in a statement. “And that is exactly what dotMobi offers with its goMobi service. It’s a cost-effective way for any business to create and manage a mobile website while giving hosting companies a profitable way to help those customers.”
cPanel says that goMobi is available as a cPanel application with a fully integrated WHMCS module for billing and client management.
dotMobi began offering goMobi through Parallels Plesk Panel in August.
