TOTD #153: GlassFish Hosting Options - VPS, Shared, Dedicated

So you've built an application using all the great features of Java EE 6 and GlassFish, tested them internally, and now ready to share the application with the world. This Tip Of The Day (TOTD) provide a summary of GlassFish hosting providers, however a few points to note first:
  • Make sure to understand what you are getting for the quoted price. Some providers include only basic services and the cost may go up if additional features are required. Some providers may quote a low price (to be enticing) but the capabilities may not meet your demands.
  • Check with providers for the exact version of GlassFish as some of them have an outdated website.
  • Some providers charge tax on top of the quoted price so your overall cost maybe higher.
  • Not all providers provide dedicated, VPS, shared server
  • This is not an exhaustive list as you can pick any hosting provider serving VPS and install GlassFish over there. From the list below, some provide GlassFish

And now the list (based upon information from the public websites) ...

The list at GlassFish wiki is also updated to reflect this information.
