How to redirect your website to its mobile version

You can try methods below:

Javascript Method
Because mobile phones typically have a small screen width, you can redirect visitors to your mobile site if they have a screen width of less than or equal to 800 pixels. You can use the following code to do this:
Code:
<script type="text/javascript">
	<!--
	if (screen.width <= 800) {
		window.location = "http://m.domain.com";
	}
	//-->
</script>
While testing this on a SAMSUNG smart phone, the screen resolution varied based upon how the phone was held. To get the best results, you may have to test with various smart phones.
Please keep in mind however that if the user does not have javascript enabled, this will not work.

.htaccess redirects
You can use a .htaccess redirect to transfer visitors based upon mime types that their browser accepts. For example, if the user's browser accepts mime types that include WML (Wireless Markup Language), then most likely it is a mobile device.

The code below should be placed in your .htaccess file:
Code:
RewriteEngine On
# Check for mime types commonly accepted by mobile devices
RewriteCond %{HTTP_ACCEPT} "text\/vnd\.wap\.wml|application\/vnd\.wap\.xhtml\+xml" [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/$
RewriteRule ^ http://m.domain.com%{REQUEST_URI} [R,L]
