its free so you cant get any better value than that if you are just testing/looking into a few things, but like most things in life, you get what you pay for, can be slow at times.

Thanks a lot, Damien. Thats great place for testing out and so on. I definetely will use it.
But also I need something more advanced, which won't be free I presume. Service that at least allows to have dedicayted web application (or several) for my own use. Does anybody knows such hosting solutions? Thanks in advance

I'm actually thinking about building an e-comm site over the next several months as a personal business venture, and to be honest, I'm planning to host the site from my apartment. Here in New York, I can get a dedicated static IP connection with 1Mb bandwidth with a reliable provider for $80/month. The benefits of this approach is that I can run any software I want and I have total control of the environment. The downside is sleeping beside a server which is constantly running and making noise. Actually, that's not much different than what I do during the day at work, the only difference being is that I'm awake, hehehe
Try hosting it from home, what the hell!

Safrole, good plan, i will consider doing the same as soon as ISPs here start offering such kind of service. Unfortunatelly, at the moment best that I can get without much hassle is ADSL, which is not exactly good idea for running the server
Does anybody worked with any hosting with JSP/servlet support? It seems to be not much of such hosting solutions offered on the market. I wonder why...

'Good value' is subjective. I'm really happy with MMA Web.
At $50/month (for the private JVM option) that may seem steep to some, but remember that you don't get what you don't pay for. The support has been phenomonal and after going through 7 hosting companies in as many months trying to find one that satisfied my needs, I've been with them for over 3 years now.

Wow. I was using clicknetsolutions, until they were swallowed by dot5hosting; it cost me some $7/mo.
But, basically, I have a strong suspicion that hosting jsp is not what a sane admin would allow. On which port do they run Tomcat, on 80? One can hack anything through one's jsp via port 80, right?

Thanks,<br />Vlad
I agree. Here's the link:
