    Java webhosting


    I am wondering why Java hosting is always more expensive than a PHP one :/ I can not afford dozens of $$ a month to have a hosting of my pretty simple website. Anybody know a relative cheap and reliable Java hosting?

    Java is significantly less popular, and significantly more difficult to install and maintain compared to PHP. Those three factors are going to make it almost universally more expensive to host.

    Java is more resource intensive to host so essentially a provider can't host as many websites on a server thus the higher price.
