What is WAP hosting?

This type of hosting was designed to create and store WAP websites. WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) is a technical standard for accessing information over a mobile wireless network (GSM, CDMA etc). It was very popular in the early 2000s when 3g and 4g mobile Internet were not introduced yet.

Generally, the hosting is not bad. The support is on a high level and the Shared and WordPress hosting packages are quite cheap. The enhanced cPanel looks very nice as well. On other hand, the VPS and Dedicated server characteristics are not fully described. Also, the server security has to be maintained on your own. Due to this, VPS and Dedicated hosting can be recommended for more proficient users rather than for beginners.

Provider DreamHost is a grandfather of the worldwide hosting market. More than 20 years of work speaks to the reliabilty of their services. Like any other American hoster, DreamHost offers an unlimited services plan, but its price is relatively expensive for what is being offered. Also, users' complaints about the low speed of PHP scripts could be considered a disadvantage. In addition, the interface is not very logical, and can be confusing to users.

The technical aspects of 1&1 IONOS web hosting services are excellent. As what they are claiming: 1&1 IONOS is the hosting and cloud partner of choice for small and medium-sized businesses. Their time-frame in setting up an account may take some time (24-48 hours). After signing up, you will receive your Customer ID # and your login details in a few minutes, but the hosting account could be fully active in 24-48 hours. That means, FTP accounts and databases and also domain registration will be fully active within that time-frame. 1&1 Internet is now 1&1 IONOS and the main feature of their rebranding is implementing the Personal Assistant and online chatting with the representatives. So, if you can endure the sign-up process and don’t mind waiting, then we can certainly recommend 1&1 IONOS for you.

How does the WAP protocol work?

When you open a WAP site, your mobile phone sends a request to a gateway server using WAP protocol. Then the gateway server retrieves the data via HTTP from the website and encodes it as WML. Afterwards, the encoded data is sent to your device and you can see the content of the webpage.

So, in order to create a WAP website, you will definitely need a WML tool. WML is an XML-based markup language for mobile devices. It is actually an analogue of HTML. WML was designed to describe the content and format for presenting data, the hierarchy of windows and links. HTML and WML are quite similar, however, the value of the content-type header should be text/html for an HTML page and text/vnd.wap.wml for a WML document. Also, the main difference between these two languages is that WML is used on phones while HTML is used for desktop clients.

What kind of hosting is suitable for creating WAP sites?

Basically, any type of hosting. WAP sites do not have special hosting requirements. Due to this, it is quite hard to find a specified WAP hosting package or provider. On the other hand, you don’t need to spend time looking for a specific provider. You can choose merely any hosting package that meets your website requirements and needs.

How to make your website available via WAP?

When visitors open your website on mobile devices, the index.xml file should be loaded first. In order for this particular file to be loaded, it is required to add this line [DirectoryIndex index.wml] (without brackets) to the .htaccess file.
