A variety of Java hosting solutions has been offered and we are working on extending the offer based on the market needs. Base offer includes private Java on shared server and private Java on VPS. The former gives our clients managed environment with commonly wanted services and control panels. Custom Java hosting setups including clustered solutions are also offered. Clients can easily upgrade, downgrade and change packages and Java hosting solutions.
Data integrity and safety is also on our mind. Everyone wants his Java based website to have 100% uptime. The first line of defence is RAID10 disk subsystem. VPS clients can use VPS Central backup and restore. Additionaly, full VPS filesystem backups are performed weekly. Shared server clients can perform backups using cPanel. We also run weekly and monthly full cPanel account backups for you. Dedicated backup solution for your Java hosting account or VPS can be set up one for you too.
Continuos upgrades are important for security of your Java hosting account. We take care to provide you with newest versions of JDK, servlet containers and application servers. These can be easily upgraded in our Java Control Panel. cPanel and OS level upgrades take place in background as soon as new versions are released.
One of the goals was to bring Java hosting prices to a friendly level as it was a stopper for some developers for many years. Cheap Java hosting continues to be our mark also with the recently introduced 'Lowest Price Guarnatee' that guarantees our clients maximum savings in hosting costs. We also do not use hidden fees, late fees or force client into long term contract like some companies do. Nobody likes it. With us you pay as you go and you have the flexibility of changing your billing period anytime you want.
Another goal was Java hosting environment stability. We decided to only offer dedicated Java (many companies still offer shared JVM/Java hosting) and use only enterprise grade hardware. Our private Java package prices were set at similar level as other companies shared Java packages. Multiprocessor and multicores Supermicro servers with RAID10 and hot swappable enterprise drives make for speed, stability and easy recovery.
We also developed our own Java Control Panel as being dependent on third party panel provider support (e.g. asking them to introduce a feature important to our clients) was not giving us enough flexibility with the changes we were continuously introducing and also conflicted with our vision of practically useful Java hosting control panel. The panel ease management, control and monitoring of Java and application server with a browser.
Java is a modern programming language, very popular and actively developed. Java Virtual Machine provides maximum portability and isolation. There are numerous frameworks for Java that ease developer work like Springs, Struts, JSF, GWT, Grails, Stripes, Play, Zkoss, Wicket, Tapestry and others. All these can be used in our Java hosting with dedicated JVM. We offer only dedicated JVM so that our clients applications do not need to share JVM like it is in many Java hosting companies. Dedicated JVM is more expensive comparing to shared JVM but we keep our prices low so that you can get dedicated JVM for the price of shared JVM. You can use any library, framework or jar with dedicated JVM. With dedicated JVM you have full control over it with either shell or our custom Java Control Panel JCP. Those of you who need even more security, isolation and memory can choose XEN VPS where we install JDK and preferred application server for you free of charge.
Apache Tomcat is the most popular Java application server used for running Java Server Pages and servlets at Java hosting companies. It is actively developed by Apache Software Foundation and due to its low resource requirements it is low priced by Java hosts. We, at JVM Host aim to make Java hosting available to everybody including Java developers, enthusiasts, students and any other kind of clients by trying to be the cheapest Java hosting provider on the market while preserving high hosting quality which is most important for our clients. Apache Tomcat has also the biggest community in the internet and thus the best support. We recommend it especially for beginners. Apache Tomcat 7 introduces Memory Leak Detection/Prevention, CSRF Protection and many other enhancements. You can choose to run any version of Tomcat and JDK in our Java hosting. The Apache Tomcat Native library allowing optimal performance in production environments is included.
