Hosting problem on apache server at

I have a friend that has a domain name registered with this company. I am new to web application development and will like to deploy a site i designed for him using grails. Anyone knows if this website support java application (war file) deployment ? I have just a public_html folder in the webhosting control panel. Do I just upload the war file into this directory ?

The public_html folder sounds like one typically created for the Apache web server, which does not support Java applications. Whether the hosting company also supports Java web apps or not, I cannot say. Why don;t you check with them?
