i) You can go with a third party website that create free mobile compatible website.
List of the website that create free mobile based website
*. http://www.dudamobile.com
*. www.octomobi.com

and Many More…

Although these services are available in free but they have their of pros and cons.

Benefits of using third party website for mobile compatible site

>> They provide free of cost site for development

>> Free hosting
>> Free subdomain
>> Additional feature (based on site to site)

Disadvantage of third party mobile compatible website
>> They provide URL that is subdomain of their own website
>> You need to pay them time to time for editing your content
>> You need to pay certain amount as subscription fee at later stage
>> Even after your website gets popular your website URL shows the third party website

ii) Use Responsive Theme: You can use responsive design for your website . Responsive Websites are built with CSS3 Technology and they have a flexibility that it will automatically adjust theri design based on screen resolution.So with this way you can use same website for Web, Mobile,Ipad,Android, Tablet etc. The disadvantage assocaited with this one is costing associated with the responsive redesing and their implementation.

Iii) Separate Theme for your mobile website: If your site is not using responsive technology and you don’t want to change look and feel of your website then you can try with this option. With thise option you can create a separate theme /design for your website and then use the new website with new URL.
For example if your current website is http://www.abc.com then your mobile site might be http://www.m.abc.com. If your current website is in wordpress then you can try with a free plugin .
WordPress theme switcher Plugin After enabling this plugin it will automatically check if the current website is opening on web or on mobile compatible device . On web it will show normal theme where as on mobile compatible device it will automatically change the thme that willl be for mobile compatile site.
