Hi Everybody

Is the possible for the hosting service provider to steal your code. Or you can encrypt it so it is no more usable for the Thief.

Thank you

What code are you talking about? You shouldn't have any code in your JSPs. And there's no need to upload any java files. But yes, I guess an unscrupulous provider could steal your class files.

All attempts to use encryption are doomed, because ultimately, the JVM needs unencrypted classes to work with. A sufficiently skilled and motivated admin will be able to beat that; the details are a bit complicated but not really difficult.

But you have to ask yourself whether you want to host with a company whose admins you don't trust? E.g., would you sleep well knowing that they're in charge of backups?

Thank you for responding, But then what is the solution. Did you suggest a reputed hosting firm with java5 and jsp and servlet support.

Please don't refer me to a list guide 1 or 2 with reasonable rate.

Thank you Again

I don't think we want to be seen as endorsing one provider over another (except maybe for Evolution Hosting, which runs JavaRanch).

The ServletsFaq contains a list providers that have been recommended by someone in the past; you can search through the forum archives to find out which were recommended by some of the moderators.

Note that it's not just a question of price - no two providers offer quite the same features set, and what is essential for me may be worthless to you.
