    How to Host a WAP site? Help!


    Hi,
    I don't know where else this could have fit in the forums, so here goes...
    I want to make a WAP site for my final year major project.
    I have a book on WML etc., & i think it should be able to teach me enough.
    BUT, i need information about hosting of WAP sites. The project needs to be implemented. So it needs to be hosted somewhere. I will be able to download emulators to test WML files & syntax, but how to make it LIVE?
    I have my domain name, & plan to take hosting for it soon. But is there something extra needed for hosting WAP sites? Or do i just put the WML files (Decks) there on the site in a separate folder - and thats it?
    Please guide me as to the process/procedure involoved. I've searched on the net, nut to no avail! :-(
    Yours,
    Japi

    Alot of hosting companies now offer WAP/WML hosting as standard. If they don't, then I know in IIS it is a case of adding the following MIME types to make it work.

    Code:
    File Extension MIME Type
    .wml         text/vnd.wap.wml 
    .wbmp      image/vnd.wap.wbmp 
    .wmlc       application/vnd.wap.wmlc 
    .wmls       text/vnd.wap.wmlscript 
    .wmlsc      application/vnd.wap.wmlscriptc
    You might have to ask them nicely to do that for you, but it shouldn't take more than a minute.
