hi I am new to java applications and have just written my first application using servlets and jsp. i am looking for cheap reliable web hosting so I can test my site other than on local host. Does anyone have any ideas ? Good support is essential as I will probably need it !
is it difficult to transfer from localhost to the web ?
Thanks

I'm soon going to be making the transition that Frances describes (localhost to a thrid party).

I've seen javaranch's list of providers (thanks!).

I'm wondering if anyone has insight into whether most of these hosting companies provide virtual hosting services so that I can access my webapp through m own domain name? I used to use the free service my-cgi-server (think it's been renamed). With that service, I could only access my webapp as:

http://mycgiserver/myusername/mywebapp

Anybody know which of the services listed on javaranch supports virtual hosting? I'd like to be able to reach my web apps through:

http://myDomainName/mywebapp

I think just about any commercial host allows you to do this. It's just the free services that don't. Look for a feature called "domain hosting" or something similar. Some will even register the domain for free as long as you host it with them.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
