I am learning the Java servelet framework to develop JAVA based web 

There are many webhosting companies, those provide web hosting  for 
php/mysql etc at relatively inexpensive price. However, servlet hosting 
is a much more expensive proposition. I went with a User Mode Linux web 
hosting service because it provided a virtual debian based linux server 
where I can practically do anything as if I own my own dedicated host ( 
64 meg real memory, 2500meg HD and 20G data transfer/month) for 
$20/month. It worked out OK for the HD space and the Data Transfer, 
however, I am running up against the brick wall of the memory. I wanted 
to try Laszlosystem ( http://www.laszlosystems.com/ ) presentation 
server. it requires 250meg ram to run some of the examples that come 
with the application.

I am looking at getting dedicated hosting server and here are the three 
services that seems to provide a cost effective solution:


The cost varies from $30/month to $50/month for a dedicated server. I 
was wondering if somebody from the list had any experience in dealing 
with these web hosting companies. I would be interested in knowing about 
their customer support if something goes wrong. My present web hosting 
server with UML is excellent. So far they only had one failure that 
lasted for few hours. It is the cost for service that goes up 
exponentially if I ask for more memory.
