Tomcat Hosting


Tomcat/JSP Java Hosting

JSP/Java hosting, Tomcat Web Hosting - Version : 7.0

Apache Tomcat/7.0 offers support for Servlet 2.4 and JSP 2.0 specifications and includes support for all common JSP/servlet applications such as the Struts development framework, JavaMail, etc.

Our heap size max memory is set to 1024MB (1GB) which is more than enough for any type of JSP web application designed to run in a shared hosting environment.

Private JVM: All of our JSP hosting plans are by default based on shared JVM/Tomcat.

Supported frameworks & applications: Spring, Struts, JSF, Hibernate, JavaMail and all popular applications!

JSP & Servlet Operation cPanel (with the mod_jk module) has JSP and servlet functionality enabled on the Apache Web server. The Tomcat engine executes JSP and servlets. Once Tomcat is enabled for a site, cPanel instructs the Web server to send certain requests to Tomcat for processing. Tomcat requires an execution environment known as context, to be set up before it can execute JSPs and servlets properly.

A context is a directory structure on the server from which Tomcat can execute servlets and JSPs. cPanel automatically sets contexts for you.

Deploying JSPs & Servlets : Deploying JSPs and servlets on the cPanel is as easy as uploading a Web site using any FTP client. When Tomcat hosting is enabled for a site using, cPanel creates a default Tomcat context, for the virtual site in the site's web directory.

Make sure you uploaded your files in the correct directory (if the directories do not exist, you can create them in FTP or cPanel File Manager):

.jsp files should go into public_html/ directory.

.class files should go into public_html/WEB-INF/classes directory

web.xml file should go into public_html/WEB-INF/ directory

.jar files should go into public_html/WEB-INF/jar directory.

The WEB-INF directory contains configuration information for Tomcat and is the directory in which servlet class files need to be placed for deployment.

Tomcat Package - $12.50 per year available with any Hosting Plan


Notes: 1) There is only one WEB-INF available per site - available for your main domain ( or; you can NOT have support for JSP pages and servlets for any sub-domains.
2) Currently we do NOT support WAR with our shared JVM plans due to common problems related to incorrect path names in the actual WAR archives. You can deploy your application files via FTP or by using our Web File Manager, and you can deploy any XML or class files in the WEB-INF folder.
3) We do not support tomcat restart activity from any cPanel.
4) JSP and Tomcat hosting support is available for our Linux based shared, reseller and vps plans as an addon service per site.
