|The best Java/JSP support. |

||Strengths: Good support for Java/JSP
Weaknesses: Free Trial account
Details: It has the best Java/JSP support.
It is easy to use interface. It is very reliable. Support is very knowledgeable and friendly. Price is reasonable.
I had shell access and could use WS_FTP via SSH to connect and transfer files. The forum acted as tech support. I recall getting support responses quickly. The support forum also acts as documentation - and you are encouraged to search for answers in it. It is not as slick as other non Java concentric sites. But the prices seem very right.
I only problem is that they shutdown Free trial account every 6 hours.
Overall, it is very good.
I love it.

||Strengths: Nice Liferay hosting
Weaknesses: Support has a bad attitude instead of trying to help.
Details: I'm an experienced java developer and don't need much handholding. However their upgrade screens are confusing. When I got confused I tried to correct the problem with a nice Email to support. I got be patient everything will be fine. Well I tried to explain that I think something is wrong. Be patient. Hmm... not getting through. I try again. Be patient. Now I start saying that help is not helpful and get a reply. You are ignorant you can't get that service for free. Hmmm.. I know that but tier upgrade didn't work and I am trying to explain that. I don't need attitude I need help. Whoever is ansering their EMail needs to look at the Emails and try and figure out what is happening not send snarky replies.

Free but unreliable
Written by Anonymous User (#1808-339) from Israel (Saturday, December 05, 2009)
||Strengths: JSP, servlets, one file upload, good examples, free
Weaknesses: Server down every 6 hours, account inactive after two weeks
Details: The only free site I found so far that actually allows for JSP and servlet applications to run on the server, however, after 6 hours without login, the java server is down in the free trial account; also after two weeks without login the account becomes inactive and cannot be reactivated unless paid services are used

Eatj free account
Written by Anonymous User (#1820-376) (Thursday, March 01, 2007)
||Strengths: Easy getting started. Dedicated Tomcat.
Weaknesses: Easy expired account.
Details: I've tried the free Eatj for some time and it works OK for development. I get a feeling that the server is heavy used (or slow hardware). You have to login ~ once a week or the free account will expire. For the moment I don't have an active account any more :(
There are other free services like .
I think both are based on shared Tomcat.

||Strengths: Private JVM, Good Forum, Very java knowledgeable support people.
Weaknesses: Only email or Forum support. No phone support
Details: I have had multiple applications hosing there for 10 months. Initially I have free tried account. It works fine. However it only provides web based upload. When I registered their developer account, it makes me fly. With ssh, I can login my Linux account to modify my any config setting and upload any files I want. I
am very happy with their hosing service. Also now they provide new environment (J2SE 5.0(1.5), Tomcat 5.5, MySQL 4.1). Only environment (java 1.4) is still

||Strengths: Java only env, separate JVM, server.xml control,cheap
Weaknesses: Downtimes, no support
Details: Happy user for about a month. Tools used: Hibernate, Maverick, JSP. All worked as expected. You have your own environment - not shared or anything.
Problem is frequent downtimes - 2 in the last 10 days - each for 3-5 hours.
After sending/receiving emails on both occasions I've got an impression that I deal with "basement" company.

||Strengths: Managed to upload and start my web application 5 minutes from registering
Weaknesses: Can't think of any
Details: What attracted me to the site was the sentence "Don't try PHP here. it won't work." After that I knew these guys were hard-core JSP developers, and they will know exactly what I need.
After replying to the confirmation e-mail the first thing I had to do was to restart the Tomcat server. After that I clicked on the "Getting started" page which described in detail how to deploy a "Hello world" application.
In any case, I skipped this, openned my Tomcat manager page, uploaded a WAR file and it worked immediately. No tricks, no "Service is down" messages, it simply WORKS.
The free service is restarted 4 times a day to save resources, so you have to keep this in mind, and in case your application fails for some reason, it's probably cause they restarted the server and you need to restart your application. They say that if you pay for an account then this will never happen. Anyway, it didn't happen to me so far! :)
