How to Host a WAP site? Help!
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! :-(

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.
You might have to ask them nicely to do that for you, but it shouldn't take more than a minute.
File Extension MIME Type
