I am not sure if this is the correct forum for this but here goes.

I currently have a domain set up on godaddy so I can test my HTML5/CSS stuff as I learn. In other words I get to show off what I can and cannot do... (heh)

Unfortunately as I start to do more with Java I have found that godaddy does not allow for java on their normal domain sites, instead you have to pay an additional $27.00 per month.

What I am looking for is a web hosting service that is low cost, reliable, and allows for Java applications to be hosted.

Any suggestions?

Check out the list at http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/ServletsFaq#hosting. $10 per month is about the minimum you need to budget for. $15-$20 for something more feature-rich (obviously depends on what you intend to do with it, how many users you need to accommodate, how much memory you need, etc.).

Thank you for the information... as I am just learning I will have to either suck up the cost or change my IIS server to a tomcat server (I am a network guy moving into programming so I have that option).

For testing purposes, you can tun Tomcat locally. You'll only need to use a hosting service to deploy.

To start with you get free ($1) micro ec2 instance from aws for first year. you can easily install tomcat, mysql and other java apps.
