Private JVM Tomcat/JSP hosting plans - Overview

Private JVM Advantages & Benefits

There are many advantages of using a Private JVM vs Shared JVM and some of the most important are:

  1. Private JVMs are more stable and secure since only your application is utilizing the allocated heap memory/virtual space + nobody but you can restart the private instance at any given time which makes them ideal for more complex/higher traffic sites

  2. Private JVMs offer better compatibility and are more secure for more complex frameworks such as Hiberenate and JSF

  3. You can control the behavior of the Tomcat instance 100% including modifying the server.xml, setting up different contexts and resources such as JNDI

  4. You can use the built in Tomcat Manager application and load or re-load your WAR files instantly

  5. You can host unlimited JSP sites and applications within the same JVM

  6. Throughout our Private Java management interface you can select the desired JDK/Tomcat version which includes:

Tomcat versions: 8.0.x, 7.0.x, 6.0.x, 5.5.x
JDK versions: 1.8.0_x, 1.7.0_x, 1.6.0_x, 1.5.0_x

JSP & Servlet Operation

cPanel (with the mod_jk module) has JSP and servlet functionality enabled on the Apache Web server. The Tomcat engine executes JSP and servlets. Once Tomcat is enabled for a site, cPanel instructs the Web server to send certain requests to Tomcat for processing. Tomcat requires an execution environment known as context, to be set up before it can execute JSP's and servlets properly.

A context is a directory structure on the server from which Tomcat can execute servlets and JSPs. With our private JVMs you can set multiple contexts directly by editing the Tomcat configuration files. You can also setup multiple JSP/Servlet mappings directly through our web based Private Tomcat interface.

Deploying JSPs & Servlets / WAR

Deploying JSPs and servlets on the cPanel is as easy as uploading a Web site using any FTP client. When Tomcat hosting is enabled for a site using our PJVM Tool, the tool installs a brand new Tomcat instance which is completely independent from any other system resources and can be manipulated either through PJVM web interface or directly from FTP/cPanel interface.

WAR files can be uploaded directly through FTP or through the default Tomcat Manager application which is dedicated only for your private JVM instance.

We received almost a perfect score (4.5 out of 5) from cnet, and have been included in their Best Hosts of 2021 listing. Below is a quote from the official editorial review on cnet:

"The company has a wide range of offerings, but by far, the stand-out feature MochaHost provides is a 180-day money-back guarantee. That's the best we've seen so far, and it removed just about all of the risk from any hosting experience.

Overall, we were impressed with how customer-centric the company's offerings are. For example, unlike some of the hosting providers we've profiled (and deducted points from), MochaHost's published prices don't balloon once you've settled in with their service. They have a lifetime price-lock guarantee

They got other customer-centric bonuses for 24/7 support, including 24/7 toll-free callback phone support, free domain name and SSL certificates for as long as you remain a MochaHost customer, a website builder with 500 free templates (and a service that will custom-design your site if you need), a site migration service. In addition, all plans are e-commerce ready and come with free shopping cart software."
