Hi,
I have a java website that needs hosting on a VPS. Has anybody heard of a hosting provider called DailyRazor
I thought i would ask the java community for the best answer.

I've been using DailyRazor to host a private Tomcat instance for some years now. Mostly I've been a satisfied customer, although occasionally other users seem to do CPU-intensive stuff on the same host as mine, so the load average jacks up and my stuff slows down. And sometimes my email gets rejected because of the IP, when other folks have sent spam from their instances. But those issues are to be expected when you go for a shared setup, I guess, and they haven't been severe enough to drive me away.

Some other Java hosting providers are listed at https://coderanch.com/wiki/659865/Servlets-Faq#hosting

I no longer recommend Dailyrazor. Being shared hosting, they are unable to do anything about other people monopolizing CPU usage, to the point that everybody's performance suffers. I opened support tickets about that repeatedly, but they only kill the one offending process at that time, and maybe notify the account in question. They repeatedly promised to put permanent fixes in place (like detecting and terminating such processes automatically), but that never happened. I'll be moving away from there as soon as the current contract is up.

Now you tell me! I just finished setting everything up there. I have private hosting however, so I haven't run into any problems yet.

Here is an uninformed question, "Why not use AWS or Azure?". I'm fairly certain that both AWS and Azure have a 'free' tier with some resource limitations.

This article, https://www.infoworld.com/article/3179785/cloud-computing/aws-vs-azure-vs-google-cloud-which-free-tier-is-best.html, discusses different providers' free tiers, which may be informative on this matter.

as i'm satisfied customer for 3 1/2 years now i can recommend ovh and its smaller tiers soyoustart and kimsufi
they also offer shared virtual services, but as real dedicated root machines so cheap on kimsufi, it's may worth a try
also: good payment model: you pay a month in advance - if you no longer want a service just stop payin and they will automaticly cancel it without any hassel or any active action required by you
also: even on shared service you have your own ip - so no worry about spam sent from another instance on the same host as they only use thoer own assigned ip

I'm not looking for free, I want easy. I have little time, and even less desire, to fiddle.
