I hope this isn't off topic for this forum, but I didn't see a more appropriate forum for this post. I'm looking for a company that can host a dedicated server running a web app on Linux/Tomcat/MySQL. I want a company that has both a street address and a data center located in the United States. Hopefully the fees would not amount to more than (say) $400/month. I'm surprised at how few options there are. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

If you'd be happy with Solaris over Linux, I've been pleased with mmaweb.net.

Thanks. Didn't see anything about dedicated servers though, but I contacted them anyway. Of course I'd much rather have Solaris than Linux.

Seems there are a lot of fly-by-night companies out there. You don't know where they are located, where the data center is, and their legal stuff often says you're responsible for everything and they are responsible for absolutely nothing. Seems like there should be some companies that offer just the most basic legal assurances and service at a reasonable fee (i.e. $200/month or less), but I haven't found one yet.

Looked at a number of companies that seem pretty good, but always come up short for one reason or another (too expensive, scary legal agreements, no physical address or phone number, etc.):

This one looks really good. Very reasonable prices, physical addresses, explicit legal agreements, etc. Has anyone had any dealings with IPowerWeb?

Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see any mention of JSP/Servlets.

No... I didn't either. But lacking a good choice that provides JSP/Servlets out-of-the-box, I guess you could just get any old dedicated hosting computer and install all that stuff yourself. Of course, I'd prefer a hosting service that is geared for the technologies I plan to use - just haven't been able to find it. And you gotta admit, they are providing a lot of bang for the buck.

Here's another one that looks pretty good, but again, no pre-installed Java stuff:

Here are a few more that gives you Tomcat / MySQL. I've found a few offering that for about $16.95 (shared VM) to $26.95 (dedicated VM).

Do a Google search on "Java JSP Hosting" and see for yourself.
