Hosting Options For Grails ApplicationsThe following hosting providers support Grails applications. As hosting options often change the information is dated in order to help determine relevancy. All of the hosting services below has been confirmed to work fine with Grails by someone from the user forum, as of the added/update date. Still, check before signing up, if they allow Spring, Hibernate and third-party frameworks in general. Hosting services are divided into three categories:

Hosting Planethttp://planet-hosting.netHosting Planet Limited is hosting company offering Java hosting using private JVM. All java-hosting plans include Tomcat as JSP/Servlet container. Please see http://planet-hosting.net/show.html?alias=java-jsp-servlet-tomcat-hosting

Updated 8/07/2007eatj.com offers free java hosting that seems to work fine with Grails so far. The catch - they will kill the Tomcat server every 6 hours so you have to go and manually restart it but for development and personal hosting this is fine. They have also a $6.98 plan (500 MB space, 30 GB file transfer, private JVM) and other more advanced plans including a $69 dedicated server plan. Can deploy war files.The jdbc url to the MySQL database should be set to jdbc:mysql://localhost/#id#?autoReconnect=true where #id# is your eatj logon id. Set the userid and password to your eatj logon ID and password and you are set.
Added 7/25/2010Prices increased - Basic: $9.85 (5 GB storage, 30 GB bandwidtch, Private Tomcat, 64 MB memory usage), Advanced: $16.85 (500 GB storage, 5000 GB bandwidth, Private Tomcat, 96 MB memory usage)
Added 10/17/2007The entry below is a little old, so I wanted to post an update.KGBInternet.com is still active. Their shared Tomcat plan is only $10/month, and a dedicated JVM is $20/month. I was able to deploy a grails generated WAR by exploding it into the public_html folder that is provided. Worked fine the first time.
Added 4/11/2006Quite simply, a developers playground with great support. It is rare to find a provider that answers the actual questions asked, let alone answers promptly and personally. Keith knows his servers and setup, and so answers questions directly himself. No bouncing of your query between different tiers of support required.Besides the expected features (Tomcat, database, etc), KGBInternet had no problems with me running Grails in dev mode on their server. Very useful when interacting with 3rd party servers that cannot reach my laptop! And very useful to rebuild a deployed app when a little bug is fixed, avoiding uploading a 11meg war for a tiny fix. The only thing you need to know: the server port (found in server.xml), and the fact restart of the server will restart Tomcat automatically. Anything else, just ask Keith.
Added 7/25/2010Prices are still valid - they are in Canadian Dollar
Added 08/08/2007Looks promising: $10.95 for a shared JVM/Tomcat and $22.95 ($17.95 if paying annually) for private JVM/Tomcat with 96MB memory. You can deploy via war files but only on private Tomcat.
Updated 05/07/2010Private JVMs start at $19/mo for 64 MB heap. $29/mo for 128 MB. Accounts scale up from there all the way to dedicated server clusters. Setup fee $15-20. They run their own datacenter in the US and have been doing Java hosting for over 10 years. Over 100 reviews spanning their 10 year history available here: http://www.servlets.com/isps/servlet/ISPReviewView?id=33
Added 08/08/2007Looks OK. Plans are $16.99 for a shared and $26.99 for dedicated JVM. Although, they give only 64MB memory (either plan). Accept war file.
Added 5/01/2008I tried their service and Grails worked like a charm.Private Tomcat - $19.95/64MB Premium Tomcat - $45.95/160MB Private JBoss - $69.95/160MBPlesk CP included.
Added 5/09/2008Private Tomcat/Jetty/JBoss plans start at $14.99/monthly (additonal 32MB Heap Size - $5/monthly).OpenVZ virtualization3 plans - from $19.97 to $79.97 per month
Virtual Private Server HostingIn general, these services are less expensive. They usually let you install software and manage it, which may be more work, but for sure it gives you more control.

Added 8/07/2007You manage yourself your server, well virtual server. But they help you to install software, if you want it. Prices (per mo.): $20 for 96MB, $25 for 128MB and up. Ahh, $10 setup fee.
Added 08/08/2007Virtual Private Servers for $25 with 256MB. But they leave you with managing it. Currently, no swap memory support, which they say is not a problem for Tomcat, but may be an issue for JBoss.
Added 08/08/2007Plans start at $20/mo (gives you a 256MB server). Looks good.
Added 1/10/20086 plans ranging from $7.95 to $129.95 per month (discounts for paying 3, 6 , or 12 months) Choice of OpenVZ or Xen virtualizationDisk Space: 2.5 GB to 80 GB Bandwidth: 100 GB to 2000 GB Dedicated RAM: 64 MB to 2048 MB (see note below) Dedicated IP(s) 1 to 10Note: they advertise "dedicated RAM" but in fact this is the amount of virtual memory that they offer on OpenVZ. The memory limit is a hard limit on OpenVZ.
netcuphttp://www.netcup.de -website only in German-
Review 1netcup.de is by far the worst experience I've ever had with any company of any sort.
- Inability to cancel something via the internet that I was able to order via the internet. How can I legally enter an agreement over the internet but not exit an agreement? That is ludicrous.
- 74.5€ in late fees on a 20.97€ bill, for a service that I was unaware of being subscribed to. I'm a poor student, I don't have cash like that laying around. This means I can't buy course literature in time for when the courses start.
- The service in it self was not very good. Being artificially limited to 400KB/s is extremely bad, especially when bandwidth was supposedly 'free'.
