    Default Anyone recommend a good XHTML hosting?

    Anyone recommends to good (free) XHTML site hosting?
    I have been in freehostia.com but as those guys declared that application/xhtml is violating their principles, I have need to remove those sites immediatly. So, what I need:
    1. Unix/Linux hosting
    2. Perl
    3. LibXSLT installed
    4. SVG configured to mimetype
    5. application/xhtml mimetype
    6. cache-control: no transform in HTTP header

    Possibly free at the moment as my sites do not make any money yet.

    I don't really believe that, my 1st ever site is still running on Freehostia and it is xHTML.
    Anyway, all hosts support xhtml
    Guess you could try 000webhost

    This is the answers I got from them:
    ------------------
    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting our Technical Support Department.

    If you are hosting a WAP site in your account with us I have to inform you that this is a violation of our Terms Of Service. That is why the WAP pages of your site are not working properly on our servers, too.
    I will strongly advice you to remove all the WAP content from your account with us as soon as possible.

    Thank you for the assistance and for the understanding in this matter. In case you have any other questions please let us know.

    Best Regards,
    Viktor
    -----------------------
    I am referring to WAP based sites, not to the files extensions. I am afraid that this will not work on our servers due to the security restrictions set.

    MIME-type: |application/vnd.wap.xhtml+xml| with cache-control:no-transform

    In case any further assistance is needed or if you have any questions in the future do not hesitate to contact us.

    Best Regards,
    Viktor

    What file extension you are using to get it served as application/XHTML?

    on all my .mobi sites I use the file naming extension .html even though they are coded to .xhtml standards, I haven't had any problems thus far. But I'm not using any free hosting, I'm using 1&1.

    How do you get them served as application/XHTML then?
    Without this and cache-control: no-transform in HTTP header Vodaphone, Google mobile search, etc transcoders will redesign your pages and serve them from their cache.

    I'm not the worlds best coder (faaaaarrrrrrr from it in fact) so I may be misunderstanding your issues. All I'm saying is that for example at Alcatraz.mobi, on my server the homepage file is named index.html, while in it's header info I call out:

    Code:
    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' ?><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD XHTML Mobile 1.0//EN" "http://www.openmobilealliance.org/tech/DTD/xhtml-mobile10.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    Doing this has worked just fine for me.

    That's why your Alcatraz.mobi is also adapted by google, for example my search shows following page - http://www.google.com/gwt/x?eosr=on&...2Fhistory.html

    Using meta http-equiv tags

    The meta http-equiv tag enables you to inform the HTTP server about the kinds of headers it may provide. If you do not have access to the server directly, but if you are able to modify your html pages then you can use a http-equiv meta tag directly in your content. Include the following line at the top of your page:
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" value="application/xhtml+xml" />

    The previous version of WAP is 1.2.1. WAP 1.2.1 sites are developed using WML and WMLScript. WAP 2.0 is backward compatible to WAP 1.x. So, a WAP 2.0 wireless device can be used to visit both XHTML MP / WCSS and WML / WMLScript sites. If you are interested in learning WML or WMLScript, you may want to read our WML tutorial and WMLScript tutorial.

    Those http-equiv tags does not help!!!




    I have set both:
    1. <meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="no-transform"/>
    2. <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="application/xhtml+xml; charset=utf-8"/>
    so I asked some advise and was told, that those parameters must be set in HTTP header. As Im unable to set those either in Freehostia or 000webhost, so Im asking is there any hosting provider who have approprite mimetype configured and also Perl libraries installed.

    I'm curious what steps you take to get these google results? When I visit their http://www.google.com/xhtml and search for alcatraz.mobi and ask for mobile results, it does no transforms and also shows their mobile friendly icon

    Problem detected. As Im in Spain, google www.google.com/xhtml uses Spanish results which does the adaptation. When swithing first to english page, then to mobile search it shows your and my pages without the adaption and even with mobile friendly icon. so seems, that I can still host my pages in freehostia even validator.w3.org complains about the HTTP header.
