At Alden Hosting we eat and breathe Java! We are the industry leader in providing affordable, quality and efficient Java web hosting in the shared hosting marketplace. All our sites run on our Java hosing platform configured for optimum performance using Java 1.6, Tomcat 6, MySQL 5, Apache 2.2 and web application frameworks such as Struts, Hibernate, Cocoon, Ant, etc.

We offer only one type of Java hosting - Private Tomcat. Hosting accounts on the Private Tomcat environment get their very own Tomcat server. You can start and re-start your entire Tomcat server yourself.

BUYING TIP: Before choosing another JSP/Servlets web host - make sure they fully understand JSP/Servlets hosting and can support your Java web app technical inquiries.

Make sure it's not a VPS package - why? VPS is a Virtual Private Server, it's not like getting your own Tomcat server - who is going to support your Java web application on VPS, definitely not the web host - so beware of this! If you have any questions and/or concerns, please email us at .

Before you choose a Java web hosting provider you should ask yourself "Why is it that only few companies offer Java hosting?" The answer to this common question is simple - hosting Java web applications (i.e. JSP and Servlets hosting) is a complicated task that requires Java expertise in and out. Anyone can offer ASP.NET and/or PHP web hosting but only a few can offer quality Java (JSP/Servlets) hosting.

The Java Tutorials are now on-line practical guides for programmers who want to use the Java programming language to create applications. They include hundreds of complete, working examples, and dozens of lessons. Groups of related lessons are organized into "trails".

To support these capabilities, Tomcat 6 includes a web application (installed by default on context path /manager) that supports the following functions:
