Subject RE: [OT] JSP/Servlet Hosting
Date Mon, 07 Jun 2004 10:22:43 GMT
The one and only suggestion that I would have for you is to find a 
dedicated server to host you applications on.  After searching high and 
low for a hosting service for my applications I finally came to the 
reality that if I was ever to be happy it would be only when I had my 
own server to host my applications on.  This is where ServerBeach came 
in.  they have some very low cost services and I have had great success 
with them getting my applications to the internet market.

If not then a service similar to this.  This is just who 
I use and would recommend.
