To sign up for GoMobi, you must go through a reseller such as HostPapa. This option is inexpensive- $5.95 per month with HostPapa-but it also means you don't have full access to the interface. If you want to have full control over the domains, registration and the GoMobi sites, you need to become a reseller yourself. The fee for this will vary depending on the hosting provider, but it will give you full access to the GoMobi Site Builder, the option to regulate users on the interface and the ability to charge a hosting fee to your clients.
With Mofuse you can build a mobile version of your website yourself, hire Mofuse to do it or become a reseller of its services.
The look and feel of Mofuse resembles GoMobi and therefore makes it easy to understand and build a mobile site. Depending on the needs of your business, this could take as little as 20 minutes. Enter some basic information, launch a default template and start to build with it.
The next step is the Mobile Site Menu. Here you add elements to the site, then edit the order of appearance, the look and feel, CSS attributes, colors, monetization, analytics, social media integration and more.
As with other mobile programs, you can create code after the fact and insert it into the desktop site. If someone comes to your desktop site from a mobile device, the code detects that and seamlessly redirects the user to the mobile interface.
Mofuse offers a free 14-day trial. Its price points vary depending on the number of monthly views and the building blocks you need. (These range from RSS feeds to weather widgets.) The JumpStart package, for examples, offers 10 elements, allows for 1,500 views and costs $7.95 per month. In contrast, the Ultimate package gives you unlimited elements, covers 1,500,000 views and costs $199.00 per month. However, the Ultimate package, as well as the $89-a-month Small Business package, lets you edit CSS.
You can also choose to become a reseller of the Mofuse services. Unlike GoMobi, though, there are no setup fees, nor is there a contract.
