The most common approaches for multi-screen sites

There are three ways to make your site multi-screen friendly:

  • Responsive web design: a clever design technique that uses a single HTML code base for all platforms.
  • Dynamic serving: in this method, the web server detects the type of device a visitor is using, then presents a custom page designed for that device.
  • Separate mobile site: a third option is to simply create a mobile site that’s separate from your original desktop site.
