WAP Hosting Information

(updated 19-May-2002 )


So you already have a virtual server somewhere, but you want to now develop WAP services...

You think you need to find a company who specialise in WAP Hosting, but you might be making a costly mistake. You might already be able to host WAP pages on your current server.

If you have access to your server's configuration files, the simple addition of five new mime types will allow your server to deliver WAP content.

In any case - head over to http://ParadoxCafe.NET and see what a good deal you could get on all types of hosting.

It is perfectly possible to run *.wml pages along side *.html pages on the same server. You just have to reconfigure your server with the appropriate Mime Types.

IF you can get access to your APACHE server configuration files, look for a file called mime.types. This is usually in www/conf/mime.types. Just add the following 5 mime types to the end of this file:

text/vnd.wap.wml Wml
Application/vnd.wap.wmlc Wmlc
text/vnd.wap.wmlscript Wmls
Application/vnd.wap.wmlscriptc Wmlsc
image/vnd.wap.wbmp wbmp

This means that any file with *wml and above extensions will be recognisable as such by a WAP phone connecting to your server.

You can also search the WAP section here on for more resources.

You could also ask your ISP to add these mime types for you. If you cannot reconfigure your server, we can rent some space to you.
