I just need to confirm something.

Since dotCMS (it's like the java counterpart of Joomla!) is java based, does it mean that when I purchased a J2EE web host, some are which suggested in the JavaRanch FAQ, my dotCMS-developed website will run on that web host?

The dotCMS webhost is quite expensive as compared to Lunarpages. Is it also difficult to setup/install the whole package in Lunarpages? I hope you can help me, it's my first time to use dotCMS, and I think it's the best J2EE CMS out there. Thank you very much in advance.

Hi Denise,

Well in theory yesa hosting service that provides J2EE/JEE hosting should host your CMS. What requirements does your CMS need though?

* An Web/App server?
* A database?
* A smtp gateway to send mails through?

etc etc

Thanks for the confirmation.

I'm basically developing a CMS (with news, forums, blogs, repository)... stuffs like that, quite simple. I am familiar with Joomla but I wanna switch to a Java based CMS since it's like a nice practice for SCWCD (maybe ) I think dotCMS is the best find. I just needed confirmation on what webhosts to use.

Thanks again for the help

I agree. Here's the link:
