As some may have noticed, it can be a frustrating process trying to put servlets on the internet. Most public web hosts are happy to support
CGI, ASP etc., but have little understanding of or support for servlets, despite their many claimed advantages over common perl scripts. If you
know of any public web hosting companies which support servlets, please add them to the list below. If you have any
experience (good or bad) with any of the hosts listed, please add a comment. Feel free to correct any information which has become out of date.

CommentsAfter some emailing of providers a year or so ago, I opted for this company. Unfortunately, in my naivety I was misled. They claim servlet support, and while strictly true, in practice it is hardly usable on most of their hosting plans. They use Netscape Enterprise Server, which is reknowned for its out of date and buggy servlet implementation. A more reasonable servlet engine (JRun) is available, but only as an option on their most expensive hosting plan. The one saving grace of this provider is that they do allow the running of user-installed servers, so for the moment I run a pure-java open-source servlet server on an alternative port. It's a clumsy solution, though, and I'm looking to change to another provider. --FrankCarverHost Pro (http://www.hostpro.com/)
This information may be out of date. The site doesn't seem to have been touched since 1998The Reamey Technology Group (http://www.reamey.com/)
Their site says: "Coming Soon! Java Servlet and CORBA based web hosting!", although it was last modified in January 1999, so who knows?

Nowcom (http://www.nowcom.com) No mention of Java on their web site. Pair Net (http://www.pairnet.com/)Used to host servlets, but don't any more. Pity.Atension, Inc (http://www.atension.com/) Merged with Rare Medium inc (http://www.raremedium.com), and no longer seem to offer public servlet hosting Horus Networks (http://www.horus-networks.com/)Some other lists suggest these support servlets, but there's nothing on their (confused and probably out of date) web site to support this.Eon Communications (http://www.eon.at/) The web site is in German, and doesn't seem to give any technical details or mention Java at all. It is listed on some other lists, though.
