General

How do I order a domain?
Click the "Order Now!" link anywhere on the site to access the order form. Submit the order form and your domain will be created upon payment verification. You will receive a 'Welcome E-mail' with hosting account and getNetPortal information. top ]

What is shared (or virtual) web hosting?
Shared hosting, purchasing only part rather then the whole server, offers a cost effective solution to managing your website. With a shared hosting account you will receive secure space on a server, a high-speed connection to the Internet for your site and software tools for you to build and maintain your web site. View our Java Web Hosting section to determine which shared hosting solution fits your needs. top ]

What is a domain name and how can I get one?
A domain name is your address on the World Wide Web. To be accessed from anywhere in the world, a domain name must be registered with an ICANN accredited registrar. If you already have a domain name, there is no additional cost to use that domain name with JavaServletHosting.com. If you need a domain name you can purchase one through JavaServletHosting.com. We'll handle the entire registration and domain name management process for you. JavaServletHosting.com can register a number of TLDs on your behalf. Use our order form to check the TLDs we can register/transfer on your behalf and the availability of the specific domain name you want. top ]

Policies

How long does it take to setup a new account?
Our automated sign-up form ensures you have provided us with all necessary details to set your account up pending payment approval. If paying by credit card or electronic check via PayPal, your account will, in most cases, be set up within 30 minutes of us receiving payment confirmation. If paying by physical check or money order, the payment method must first be preapproved and then the payment must be received and bank cleared prior to account activation. Electronic payments are the fastest method of acquiring service. top ]

Is there a 100% money-back guarantee?
Try our service absolutely risk-free! If you wish to cancel your account for any reason within the first 30 days, you will receive a full refund for all base hosting fees. This is a no-questions asked, full refund, 100% money back guarantee of all base hosting fees. You have nothing to lose! This offer applies to the initial contracted term and does not include domain name registration or SSL certificates (external fees). If you took advantage of a special offer that gave you domain registration free, your refund will be less the posted cost for the domain registration. top ]

Equipment & Connectivity

What is JavaServletHosting.com's uptime?
JavaServletHosting.com' uptime averages more than 99.8% per month. top ]

What are JavaServletHosting.com's server specifications?
Since we offer different types of hosting packages, our server specs vary. The bare minimum is a 2x Dual-Core Xeon premium rackmount server with 16GB of RAM running a high-performance hardware-based RAID-10 array with enhanced caching and utilizing redundant power supplies. top ]

What software does JavaServletHosting.com run on its servers?
We use CentOS Enterprise Linux AS running Apache v2.x as the web server. We also offer PHP 5.x, MySQL 5.x, Tomcat 5.5.x/6.x (Java 1.5.x/1.6.x) and Perl 5.8.x. We only use enterprise server-class OSes; unlike most other providers, we do not use hobbyist linux builds (Slackware, Debian), builds designed to have short lifecycles and expected stability issues (Fedora, Gentoo), or those primarily catering towards desktop environments (Mandrake/Mandriva, SuSE). top ]

How do I transfer my site to JavaServletHosting.com?
Step 1: Sign up with us just as if it was a new account.
Step 2: Upon payment verification you will receive a welcome email from us informing you that the setup of your account has been completed.
Step 3: Transfer your content and test your site on our server using the information provided in the welcome email.
Step 4: Email a domain name transfer request (or use a web interface if available) to the appropriate registrar company (the company that you initially registered your domain name through). Use the javaservlethosting.com nameservers that are on the signup form when transferring your domain name. If you need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Step 5: Once you verify the transfer, the registrar will point your domain name to our name server, and the rest of the world will be able to access your new site on our server with your domain name. top ]
