Looking for recommendations for a good hosting company that supports custom Tomcat installations and has good Java support people.

My current VPS hosting company has deteriorated over the years as it has discontinued more and more support (only one Java support guy, no more custom tomcat installations, etc.).

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, yes, saw those listings already. I'm assuming that's what you were referring to.

I was looking for actual recommendations, however, not just a listing.

Thanks Bear.

All of those were added because they were recommend by somebody. I use mmaweb. I find them a tad pricey, but I stay with them because I get good support.

I don't think a blanket recommendation makes sense without knowing your requirements. If you compare plans, there are numerous differences as to what is being offered, location (and hence network latency), price etc.

I looked at this site, but do they offer:

SSH terminal access to your "/" level
FTP control over your domains
Unlimited domains/sub-domains
Email with unlimited forwarders
MySQL/Tomcat
cPanel/WHM (or equivalent)
VPS type setup?
Easy web service / Java Application installation
Good Tech Support (for Java, not just Linux CMS sites)
Full access to local Tomcat logs, etc.
Full backup of each domain

I could tell you more about my current hosting company in a private chat, but not sure that's necessary.

I pay about $40/month for a full VPS account with 100GB disk space and all the features I just mentioned plus more that I probably didn't. Of course, I could just be getting what I pay for since my hosting experience is often fraught with dealing with ticket-based tech support and often little or no help (one "java guy", etc.). Frustration++.

Look forward to your reply.

That's totally fair.

I host CMS (Drupal) sites, but also need to be able to host multiple Java Web Services (JAX-RS/JAX-WS).

I'm finding Tomcat support dwindling to just the cPanel "EasyApache" on new VPS accounts (if I needed to migrate).

cPanel/WHM/FTP/SSH are all normal and expected.

I posted more in my reply to Bear.

Would appreciate your thoughts as well.

Thanks,

-mike

What do you mean by Java support? Could you give some examples?

I'm hosting with DailyRazor who have a range of plans, mostly differing in the JVM heap size. I think they have most of what you mention; not sure of backup (I prefer to do that myself), and I haven't tested Java support specifically (not sure what they might even do, given that it's my Java apps).

Thanks, I just checked them out. More expensive by about $17 per month than what I have now, but may give better support.

I didn't see that they offered (unlimited) email accounts, unlimited forwarders, and the like, which I also have now.

Do they offer email accounts or just hosting?

Thanks,

Ron



Examples:

-- An application deployment problem for example where there are no logging errors (possible server configuration problem).

-- A mod_jk issue where Tomcat is not getting the hand-off from Apache (being able to figure this out).

----

I had tried to upgrade recently to a new VPS, but the support people were not able to figure out why a basic Servlet would not work on the new version of Apache+Tomcat+Java. The Servlet worked fine on the old VPS and, of course, locally.

Lots of moving parts.

What I find in hosting is that EVERYTHING always works fine locally, but getting it to work on a Linux hosing box isn't always straightforward.

Yes. Also be sure to check out the private Tomcat/JVM plans, which are cheaper than the VPS plans: http://www.dailyrazor.com/java-jsp-hosting/private-tomcat-hosting/

I already have a full VPS with email for $40/month, 100 GB disk space.

I'm really looking for better support not cheaper.

Thanks,
