Hey JGO, I don't know how to go about this nor even what to search for so, since we're a java community I figured I'd ask here ^__^

Hopefully this is the right board XD

Question:
Is there a free (or under $5.00) service that would allow me to launch my java server on it?

Server details:
A simple TCP java server that will listen on a given ip/port and wait for clients to connect.

I'd like to be able to run/stop/upload.

123systems.net

I would say its probably the best for the price, iv had days where its been laggy, but for the price I don't think you can really complain.

can be as little as $9 a year.

If you are just going to have a small amount of people on the server and its not commercial product, or really relied upon to work, then I am pretty sure 123systems will probably be enough for you.

I have had 2 years of hosting with it, when the server lags, its usually fixed for sure the next day. and that is mostly hosting a minecraft server when I am not using the server for my use for a friend. they will complain and be like restart the server, its laggy, sometimes restarting it fixes it, or i just tell them it should be fixed tomorrow.

also, check out the Github student pack if your a student.

they have a $100 worth of hosting for digitalocean I believe, not sure if you can run java applications on it or if its just a webhost.

Thanks, so basically I'd have to purchase a VPS than upload my server to it, configure no-ip etc?

Is there a service out there that is simpler, like with a control panel to manage uploading your source, running/stopping made simply to run java apps?

EDIT: Every package on 123systems.net say "0 available" but posting is appreciated thanks Cheesy

you would buy the OpenVZ VPS from them.

install Putty

Connect via putty

upload your .jar to a webhost

download java onto the vps

create a folder on your VPS

wget your .jar file

run the jar file like you would through a command prompt.


how to connect? they will give you a IP, so you can connect via the IP or you could buy a domain.

Thank you phased, I will invest some time looking @ their available products.

I haven't tested no-ip/hosting on my PC yet so I'll also invest some time into that ^__^

Thanks again phased.

EDIT: The OpenVZ is only available anually and the cheapest is $9.00, my prepaid debit has $4.00 left.
Bummer.

Now that I know I can just use putty and do the normal VPS routine I"ll just browse VPS's.

I highly recommend DigitalOcean at $5 a month. It is very fast and very simple VPS.

If you want free, there is always GoogleAppEngine - I use it for my site (see sig). It gets pricey if you become the next internet sensation. Also, it is no good if you need real-time or near real-time responses. And all interaction has to be HTTP.

EDIT: Read your requirements more closely. Forget GAE.

Thanks for the suggestion ags1 ^__^, appreciated.

I remember a while back googling for something and a search result showed up that said "Free java hosting for your networking/server" and I almost saved the link but than I thought "Nah, when I need a server hosting service for my net apps I'll just google and find this result again" but now I can't find it Emo Emo
