This would be very silly but We have never hosted a site on the Internet. I have managed to build a site with a bunch of teammates using Eclipse IDE, JSP, MySQL, Apache Geronimo. Now when we thought of putting the website online we are stuck in the methods of doing This. Please give share some of your experiences. I have an old domain of Godaddy but i dont know how to use so many resources in that. Nor I think that GODADDY account supports Java.. Waiting for your suggestions.
Thanks

You'll need to find a hosting provider that offers Java hosting. Then you need to have eclipse generate a war file for your project. This war file is what you deploy to Tomcat, or Resin, or whatever the hosting provide is using. Details will depend upon the policies of the hosting provider.

P.S. The ServletsFaq has a list of such providers.

Just read through the features and prices on the available hosting plans in the list Bear referred you to. It should give you an overview of what's available, and what you might need to spend for your requirements (of which we know very little).

So that is not a problem I can tell you what all are my requirements and you can then tell me a web hosting site for that.
From Bear's link i liked the site called eatj.com but I could not understand what i have to do once i open a free account for demo in that.
These are my requirements.
-MYSQL
-JSP
-Apache Tomcat
-Total size of the project is around 30 mb.
-The daily usage will not be too much. There are around 20 all day long users plus additional 20 extra users.

And yes tell me one more thing if i upload a war file on the web generated from my eclise IDE do i still need to upload my webpages into the server??
Thankx for replying..
