Ok so after passing SCWCD I wrote what I thought was a great web app to capture golfing statistics, allowing users to register and enter their own data, display graphics of their golf rounds, handicaps, etc.
What started out as a fun-study exercise has actually become quite practical, and I'd like to host it as a 'real' web site. Only I don't really know where to start?
The application is written using purely Java, Servlets, JSP, JavaScript, and JDBC to connect to a MySql database. Do I need to find a provider that supports these technologies? Will I be able to perform admin on 'my' database remotely?
All I have so far is a web domain of my own which I registered via Yahoo! Can anyone tell me where to go from there?
Thanks a mil
Mark.

I haven't used them, but Lunar Pages looks like they have really reasonable rates.

Try www.uniqhost.com Ive been using him for over a year on 5 sites with no problems worth mentioning...best part, an entry level site WITH servlets, JSP & databases is only $3.50 a month!

Thanks folks
I'm going with Lunarpages. They seem to have very good reviews and their versions of software (eg. MySQL, etc) appear to be the most current.
They were also very good on providing assistance, but then I won't read too much into that - any new business likes a new customer :roll:
$9.95 a month for everything I need. Not sure if that's a good deal but it fits my pocket ok for now.
Interestingly, they charge $14.95 to register your domain. I'd registered mine a couple of years ago via Yahoo! and they stung me (and continue to sting me) for $35 per annum. I thought it was a standard price across the board
Thanks again for the links.

You might want to have a look at this list of ISPs that support servlets - Servlets.com - ISP List
Quite a useful little resource

Mark, just transfer your domain. I use gkg.net for several domains that I own.

Hey Mark,
Be sure to post the URL when you get it up and running, that sounds like something I'd be very interested in using!
Thanks,
E
