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.

How does the WAP protocol work?

Most mobile phones send a request through a protocol for wireless devices to a dedicated gateway server. Then the link (URL) is processed and the content is returned through the same WAP gateway server to the requestor. In order to start using wap hosting, you need a WML tool - it's a markup language for mobile devices, which is actually an analogue of HTML. The WML markup language is a variation of XML and is used to determine how text is interpreted, the hierarchy of windows and links. The difference between HTML markup languages ​​and WML is in the content-type header, which should have the value text/html for the HTML page, and text/vnd.wap.wml for the standard WML document.

What kind of hosting is suitable for WAP sites?

Practically anyone. For a hosting provider, WAP sites simply refer to the content of the site, not hosting requirements. Because of this, hosters rarely offer special plans for these sites. That way, the wap site will work on almost any hosting provider, on any plan, as long as they meet the hosting requirements. Usually special plans are more marketing tricks of the providers.

How to configure hosting?

When opening the site from a phone, the index.wml start page should be loaded. You have to write - "DirectoryIndex index.wml" (without the quotes) in the .htaccess file (For the index (home) page).
