Hi Friends,
I am not quite sure if this is the rite place to ask this question about webhosting.I want to get a domain name for my jsp1.2-servlet built website,i am quite confused where to host it.I have narrowed down my search to these 2 sites,if anyone of you have used them,please help me to finalize my decision:

From,the stats godaddy looks cheap and good and they say they support Java too,but i am confused if they support JSP1.2 too.I have one more question too,both sides provide you POP3 mail accounts.While for godaddy i am sure,we can use outlook to send/receive mails,but can we use outlook for javaservlet too.
Please help me guys if you can..thanks

Just to answer, one of your question
You will not use outlook for servlet, you will use javamail configured to the mail account of your server(say mail.godaddy.com).

Thanks Balaji,
But to start with,I just want to buy a domain name and upload few pages,i haven't encapsulated the email logic into my website using javamail API as yet.So,if i have a domainname say for eg. www.my_domain_name.com,i want that if someone sends an email to xyz@my_domain_name.com or abc@my_domain_name.com i can receive those messages through outlook or some other email client and also respond back to them through my xyz or abc account.Please let me know,if i am going wrong somewhere with the above mentioned questions!!!

Jas,

Go Daddy supports JSP pages, but not servlets. Both will allow you to use Outlook to get your e-mail and send using your domain, and both have a web-based e-mail browser. You could also configure either to just forward e-mail to an existing e-mail address you already have configured in Outlook, but replies would be sent from your existing mail host.

Cheers,

Thanks Tom,
You have solved all my ambiguities...one last question..if you have time to answer it.I researched that www.lunarpages.com also supports jsp and servlets ($7.95+$2.00) and its cheaper then javaservlethosting($14.00) and looks good.Do you have any comments about it..Thanks Buddy!!!
