Servlets.com | ISPs Supporting Servlets
ISPs

These days it seems there are servlet engines for nearly every web server, and now we're seeing servlets commonly offered as core value-add for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Web Hosting companies.

The megacorp ISPs and Hosting companies still don't offer servlets, though, probably because it's not something Joe Consumer cares about. Also because to host servlets effectively and efficiently requires a bit of expertise. That makes finding a good servlet provider somewhat challenging.

On this page we try to help you on that endeavor by keeping track of all the ISPs that are known to host servlets. For each ISP we provide location and contact information, a short summary, and user reviews. The reviews should help you find out how the ISP you're looking at compares to others in terms of features, reliability, support, and overall score. Feel free to add one of your own.

If you know an ISP not listed here that supports servlets, please let me know.

Servlets come on Tomcat. Mid Linux plan at $15/mo gets you 25M of space, 5G of transfer, MySQL, SSL, and phone support.

Dan says, "One year ago, I purchased a server that is much more powerful than my needs. It currently sees less than 1% usage and I would like to invite people to use the resources. It will make me feel like my monthly 100MBit Internet bill is not being wasted." Yep, he's offering to let you share his resources for free! Hope you're real nice to him!

They host JSPs (who woulda guessed) using either Windows or Solaris (and in the past they used Red Hat so that might still be available). You can have your own JVM and can use JDK 1.3. They have 10 Gbps of bandwidth direct on the backbone. Database access through MS SQL is available, as well as goodies like SSL. More emphasis on JSPs than servlets.

Looks like a portal site, and as a service to their freely registered members 10 Megs of space to run JSPs, including tag libraries. Your site will have a URL like http://member.isavvix.com/<username>/. They use Tomcat and other Apache software. One user reports, "You CANNOT USE your OWN CLASSES, only the classes that they provide!"

As you can tell by the name, they do Java Servlet Hosting. $14/mo gets you 75M of space and 3G of transfer, all on Tomcat. Has perks like a 99.7% uptime guarantee and support for PHP, Python, CGI. SSH and SSL come with the next higher plan. I like that they use SpamAssassin. I love that they link to Servlets.com!

Servlets are available with their "Advanced" package at $27 a month. You get 250 Megs of storage, 5 Gigs of transfer, and SSL. The site's not your typical hosting company site. For example, they have a "Learn Magic" section where you learn magic tricks. They've been trying to improve the site after I noted problems with it (i.e. missing contact info, telnet security problems) so that's good to see.

Rackspace is a special kind of hosting company. They provide clients with the boxes and infrastructure necessary to run any web application -- managing everything from reliable power and high bandwidth up to the web server software layer -- and they let you install your application on top of that. You rent the boxes on a month-to-month basis. The control is yours and you get a root account. The best thing about this model is if you need more capacity, they can add new boxes within a day with a load balancer in front.

I first read about Rackspace in a Web Techniques article written by the amihotornot.com site maintainers where they raved over how Rackspace supported the site's phenomenal first week growth. Then last week I received a tour of the facility, and I left even more impressed. They run a tight ship with 99.999% uptime reliability, 24x7 support, and a 2 hour hardware replacement guarantee. Because of their model, if something goes wrong, they can just throw another box in its place. On the tour, I confirmed they have a secure facility, crazy high bandwidth, and power redundancy. They also manage the OS and web server for you and (most importantly) keep on top of security patches and deal with DOS attacks.

They support Red Hat Linux, Windows NT and 2K, Solaris, and FreeBSD. They have RAIDs, SSL accelerators, VPNs, load balanders, and more. Prices start at just $180/mo for a Red Hat box, which is higher than you'd pay with a shared system, but amazing for the features and support they provide.

They actually had triple digit growth in 2000, 2001, and are on track for 2002. I suggest Rackspace if you're serious about your site. Tell Guy you heard about the site from me.

Note: The free offer has been discontinued, but Ryan writes in: "I can't offer free hosting anymore but I can offer one of the cheapest hosting on the net as a sort of co-op. At first the five of us all pay around $10 a month. If 2 more people join, then we'll all pay around $7 a month, and the more people join the less we all pay plus if I get any clients buying a regular hosting of 20mb or something I'll put that cash in so we will hopefully go to paying $1 a month or free... Thats the idea so far, if anybody has a better idea I am all ears. And if you look at it, its still one of the cheapest plans on the net as is."

Ryan recently purchased a hosting package for a large project that got cancelled but doesn't want to drop the hosting package since he got a good deal and made friends with the company. He wrote me with this offer to give people FREE hosting:

"Hi Jason, I want to offer anybody who is programming in servlets free hosting but they will have to have a site that is pretty much devoted to programming (e.g. servlets.com, hotscripts, devshed, phpdev, etc). I am offering 5mb space (more on request), java servlets (Tomcat JSP engine), MySql database, PHP, CGI-BIN, etc, yourdomain.com or a sub domain. In return they must add my banner to their page but on the front page it can be just a small button. If interested and you think you qualify, write to me with your details at r@jumac.com with the subject: 'free servlets host'. Cheers -Ryan"

Since it's free he'll no doubt have to stop accepting accounts at some point. He said he'd start with 25 accounts for servlets people, and 20 accounts for PHP people. I'll note here when he's run out of room.

Ryan adds: "If they don't qualify for the free hosting they can still host at $7 a month or $70 a year. No ads required then either."

These folks aren't like a normal web hosting company. They offer to host your servlet/JSP "web application" for free, with the system supported by ad banners inserted into the HTML stream as it's sent to the client. It's a site designed to let servlet developers showcase their cool webapps. Currently they offer Servlet API 2.1, JSP 1.0, 5 Megs of space, and a 100K transfer limit per connection. (I'm a little surprised they don't use Servlet API 2.2 with its ability to individually customize webapps using deployment descriptor files.)

Update: Reports are they now only host for 15 days for free.
