4goodhosting

4goodhosting Mobile Site Builder is both a website mobilizer and a mobisite builder. In this post, I will focus mainly my review on the mobilizer feature. Details about the 4goodhosting mobisite builder are available in the Builder Category.

4goodhosting mobilizer enables website owners to create instantly mobile versions of their website. Delivered as Software as a Service, 4goodhosting mobilizer implementation doesn’t need either own hosting nor plug-in install on the original website. The software is available by subscription and its back end control panel can be handled from any web browser.

Review on 4goodhosting’s website converter

Thanks to its ease of use, its customization capabilities and its powerful contents organizer (drag & drop), 4goodhosting is highly recommended if one wants to get a beautifully designed yet highly customizable mobile website (both in terms of content and design). The website converter is for instance well suited for developers and businesses including brand and medium enterprise.

Nevertheless, due to high fragmentation of [mobisite’s] mobilized contents, 4goodhosting is less appropriate for mobilizing complex or high loaded website. Actually, although independent manageability of each single line of a mobile page improves customizability, editing, reordering and deleting of these fragmented elements can be cumbersome as contents increase.

As for the performance of conversion, the test I carried out was inconclusive. Only a portion of the website I tested was successfully mobilized. However, since results may vary from one website to another (depending on the source website technology), I invite you to try out with your own website and share your experiences with us.

How does the website converter work

4goodhosting website converter doesn’t merely adapt website layout for better display on smartphone but more importantly it rebuilds everything (menus, headers, footers, …) to create fully mobile-dedicated pages. And to speed things up, 4goodhosting offers a large number of pre-built templates that help user to change the look (colors, menus layout, background, embedded modules, icons …) of his entire mobile website with a single click.

Like most of its competitors, 4goodhosting mobilizer is also equipped with many modules that user can insert into any of his mobile pages in order to add special functions (Click to action button, Mobile Map and so on). But even more interestingly, 4goodhosting  give the user a great leeway to customize both added modules and imported contents. User can among other edit texts, change pictures and personalize styles in order to get fully customized mobile website.
