  1. #1

    Default Best web host for Java EE

    Hello,
    I would like if you know of a good quality web host and not very expensive for Java.

    And you what do you use as your website hosting for Java?
    I found webfaction.com but I do not know if this host is good.

    Thank you.

    I use Free Web Hosting Area - PHP 5.3, MySQL 5.5, FTP, Autoinstaller since I'm not interested in paying for a host.
    They don't put ads on your site (unless your site is huge) and they are one of the few free hosts that are friendly to Java. Their account manager is a bit of a pain in the ass to navigate, but I find that to be an acceptable inconvenience given everything else.

    I use Amazon Elastic Beanstalk. Might be worth checking out. It's pretty easy to go from a webapp running in tomcat to a webapp running on AEB.

    Just out of curiosity Kevin, If you don't mind disclosing such information, How much are you paying for the resources which you use with AEB?
    Please use [highlight=Java]//code goes here...[/highlight] tags when posting your code

    Prices are going to be different for everybody. I have two different webapps running, and last month I think my total was just under 20 bucks?

    Did you try jelastic. So far they are the best. Google app engine is good, but it's so restrictive.

    I'm not sure off the top of my head. Probably? I'm not sure, I just pay it at the end of the month. The best way to find out is to just consult their site.
