Im working on redesigning a rather large web site & want to do it in 90% servlets. Does anyone out there now a GOOD hosting company or plan that isn't going to kill me cash wise. I just spent 3 weeks screwing around with HostPro & their Freedom 200 plan that they advertise as supporting Java only to find out they wont support Servlets for under $150 a month (ouch) Im considering Pegasus but saw a negative feedback about them on servlets.com (yes I went thru the whole list there) Im looking for something under $70 a month that supports a full blown servlet-database driven site. Thanks for any help!

Go to:
http://www.serverpages.com/Java_Server_Pages/Hosting/
serverpages.com has a list of hosting companies and ratings. I am in the same boat as far as wanting to have a Java driven site hosted but I don't want to shell out the bucks. It seems the average for a development site is 30 dollars a month. If you want enterprise level hosting it goes up to about like what you said, $150 dollars a month.
Good luck,

I've also been looking for a JSP/Servlet host. A couple of sites I've seen let users rate hosting services. Two hosts with positive ratings that stuck in my mind are MMA ($24.99) http://www.mmaweb.net/ and iMagine (expensive) http://www.imagineis.com/ I think I'm going to give MMA a try. If anyone has any experience with these hosts, please post.
Thanks

Well I may have answered my own question but Ive done quite a bit of looking this week & Ive narowwed it down to 4 at this point. I figured Id post them here since others seem interested in this. Right now Im kind of partial to myservlethosting.com. Anywhere here are the 4 that look the best to me: http://www.aoindustries.com/servlet/com.aoindustries.website.Features http://www.myservlethosting.com/# http://inihosting.com/planpower.html http://www.ebpcs.net/
The one from inihosting just doesnt look right. Im gonna call them today & find out what the deal is with all the storage (1.2 gig) & bandwidth (20 gig)

Please try www.adgrafix.com. They are very good at reasonable cost and have 24hours support. I have my upcoming portal hosted on their server.

Hello, I'm glad I saw this post. I spent half the day yesterday looking for a hosting company that offered Tomcat, xml and mysql. I had decided on www.spinweb.net. They have a fairly good developer account that's worth looking at. However, now I think I like www.inihosting.com better. The same features I had been looking for but much more disk space, more options and cheaper. Wish I had read this before yesterday
Thanks for the tips...Richard

Hello,
I was in this position earlier this year and did a fair amount of research. I can recommend two companies.
1) WantJAVA - wantjava.com
I host a site with them and have been very happy. Good tech support, good price. They support my Servlets/JSP and provide a free MySQL database for $45/mo. They use Tomcat on Solaris machines, I think. Jason Hunter, author of O'Reilly's Java Servlet Programming book, hosts his Servlets.com site with wantJAVA.
I've had a chance to meet a few of the people there. I'm sure James would like to know that you heard about them from Scott Rodgers on the JavaRanch site. Any questions, ask for James ( jamesw@wantjava.com , I think).
2) EJIP.NET (pronounced Egypt dot net) - ejip.net
They presented at the Denver Java Users Group (I'm DJUG's Webmaster). They really know what they're doing (I think one of them sits on the Java advisory board). They are a little more expensive, but support EJB. And, JavaRanch is hosted there so you know it works!
You can't go wrong with either company. It's a matter of how much you really need.
Cheers,

www.cwihosting.com. It has almost the exact same packages as inihosting, leading me to believe they are related in some way. I have used cwihosting though and have nothing but positive things to say about them. For about $30/month, you get unmetered bandwidth, 1.2GBs of storage, MySQL databases, Servlets, JSP, PHP, CGI, and pretty much anything else you can think of. I have been unable to find a comparable deal on the net (except inihosting). I have used both the $30 package and the $15 package from them and both have been excellent, although you would have to pay extra on the $15 package to get servlets and JSP ($5/month i think).

If anyone is still watching this post. I decided on CWI as posted in the last post. I can't say enough about these people. After a small snafu on set up things have been wonderful. Their email tech support is faster than lightning. I went for the power plan at $30 a month & I have to say these guys get an A+++. So if your still looking for a GOOD servlet hosting plan go with these guys!
