Hi Everyone!
Does anybody knows a cheap webhosting site that supports JSP? The specs I hope to get is :
Price LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO $10 / month
Free Set-up
If possible, Free Domain registration
Good customer service (can chat online for help)
Fast service
So far I can only think of Lunar and CWIHosting. Anybody think these are good hosting sites?
I'm a newbie in JSP and would like to have a hands-on practice by working for my brother's website . I would like to build up my experience/work portfolio as a Web programmer.
Thanks in advance for those who will help me out

I always wondered how these public hosts are configured to stay up. You know, we ran three apps on my company server, and it's enough to choke it. I mean, what would happen if I ran a servlet on a public host that will spawn 100 long running threads and fill 10Gb of memory with junk? Do they control the resource usage on a per-application basis?

I think the admin of the web hosting company monitors if a certain client is hogging the resources. Or maybe they have rules about it that their client should know.

WebHostingTalk forums, I find it very informative.
Avoid ipowerweb.com. Their offer seems very attractive, 800MB/40G for 7.95 USD per month, but their service is horrible. I've experienced it. Usually it takes them more than 12 hours to setup a new account and it takes days to get an automated reply of your emails. And, if you sign that plan, the domain name is owned by ipowerweb but not you. Another company called LunaPages has the very similar plan for the same price. I've never tried this company, but their reputation is better than the ipowerweb.com.
My own website is powered by hostgator.com. 2,000MB/20G. 9.95 USD a month. JSP might not enabled for the baby plan but you can always discuss with them, they are friendly and honest people( Say you want the JSP enabled, but smaller disk space, still 9.95 USD per month. Deal or not? ). Believe me, their service is bravo. They really have techs 24/7 online on all major messengers ( yahoo, AIM, ICQ, MSN ). Emails get well replied within hours. 30 days money back garantee, it won't hurt to give the hostgator.com a try.
Buy your domain name at godaddy.com. For a .com domain name they only charge 7.95 USD a year. Just make sure the domain name is really owned by you but not the webhosting company.
Hope that helps.
Regards,
Ellen
