What does one need to host a 2-player game? I pay for an inexpensive website where I can post html files containing jars. Is that enough or does one need a site where Servlets are supported?

I have done a bit of Servlet programming on my home computer but home is a dynamic IP, and not anything anyone else can view.

This mostly depends on what technology you want to use. Servlets are HTTP. Those are suitable for small non-real time games. For real time networked games, you will mostly need a dedicated computer/server and use sockets. Kryonet is an excellent choice for this.

If you want to use a computer at your home yet have a dynamic IP, I suggest you get a free subdomain name from DynDNS and check if your router supports DynamicDNS.

How about a peer-to-peer solution?

Solving NAT-punch-through is a bit more advanced than 'connect to server'. Besides, you'd most likely need a central server anyway for a lobby.

For the lobby, a PHP server would suffice.
Its easy to get a free service running it also.
