Dear Ranchers,

I wish to know who is hosting JavaRanch and what is the hosting plan,
does the plan supports JSP,i see that JavaRanch downtime is negligible,because i never ever noticed it,so i am preffering the same Hosting Company for the hosting as i have to purchase a webspace,hope the staff will help because these details are with them.

When you go to www.javaranch.com, at the bottom left you will see the statemenet "powered by ejip.net", inclusive a link to a web page to get more information.

Whois information does not include the hosting provider. It says that JavaRanch is registered through GoDaddy. The fact that GoDaddy also offers hosting is coincidental.

No it doesnt:
<pre>
...
Registered through: GoDaddy.com, Inc. (http://www.godaddy.com)
Domain Name: JAVARANCH.COM
Created on: 26-Jan-98
Expires on: 25-Jan-08
Last Updated on: 17-Dec-06

...

Domain servers in listed order:
DNS2.EJIP.NET
DNS1.EJIP.NET
</pre>

There is a major difference between who a site is registered through, and who it is hosted through. JavaRanch is registered through GoDaddy, but hosted by Ejip.

And your point is?

JavaRanch is hosted on Ejip. Ejip give us fantastic service, and as you mentioned they have great uptimes.

There are other hosting services that offer different pricing. Some of them offer Java application support (which we use), and some offer CGI support (which we use) and some offer a combination of these and other services. We have found that Ejip meets our needs and provides us with fantastic service and uptime.

You have to find what works for you. Maybe GoDaddy will provide you with what you need - I can't talk to that, as I have not looked at their offerings for a long time. And maybe GoDaddy will give you the uptimes you need - I have zero knowledge about that.

But you originally asked who hosts JavaRanch - the answer is Ejip.

Regards, Andrew

I gotta say that the few times that there was some kind of server trouble, I would usually wake up to find that everything was fine and there was an e-mail exchange between the sheriffs and the EJIP staff.

Further, whenever we want to do some weird Java thing, we will send the request via e-mail and usually whatever we asked for is installed and running within minutes.

Frankly, my knowledge of Linux and how to make an app server sing is mediocre at best. The folks at EJIP have extensive server knowledge and know how to make several brands of app servers sing in harmony. I feel that I can focus on bidness-logic and software architecture more and leave the hardware/app-server stuff up to them.
