WAP (wireless application protocol) is used to deliver information to the users that access Internet from their mobile devices. Thus it is a communication protocol that interprets web pages in a specific way. In today`s market place that uses the highest standards of technology and communication services WAP hosting services have become a must have for any web site.
You should enable people to visit your web resource not only using a personal computer, but also handheld devices such as pda's, and mobile phones.
How does WAP work?
Non-technically speaking, a mobile device sends a certain request via wireless application protocol to a special gateway server. Then the URL (uniform resource locator) is interpreted and content is sent back using the same WAP gateway to the imitator of the request.
It is worth mentioning, that WAP can work with nearly any wireless network, such as commonly used GSM, CDMA, TDMA, DECT and many others.

What do you need to get started?
Surely first of all you should create a WAP web site. For this you should use one of the WML tools available. WML is wireless markup language and is quite similar to HTML, being its analogue.
Markup language is based on XML and is used to specify how the text should be interpreted, to specify the hierarchy of screens (known as decks) and hyperlinks between the screens.
The difference between HTML and WML languages only lays in the title content-type that is text/html for HTML page and text/vnd.wap.wml for a standard WML document.
