Kattare ROCKS!

If you've been following Blogging Roller for long, you know what a terrible time I had with CQHost, my previous Servlet ISP.  CQHost was cheap at $12.50 per month, but the technical support was terrible, the server manager software was broken, and the Servlet engine spent more time down than up.  After a week or so of constant server crashes and daily trouble-tickets, CQHost actually blamed my Roller software for the crashes and I knew it was time to leave.

I had been following a thread on Servet ISPs at the Java Lobby, so I already had a short-list of ISP alternatives.  Luckily, Kattare was on that list.  After reading the rave reviews of Kattare in the Servlets.COM ISP list, I signed up for Kattare's Level 3.1 plan for $29 per month.  The plan includes 100mb storage, 4 mailboxes, private Tomcat JVM, MySQL, FTP/SCP, Telnet/SSH, and lots more.

Kattare had me up and running in hours and they answered my every question with a thoughtful and informative reply.   Their systems are fast, well configured, and stable.  Roller has been running at Kattare for a week now and I have have not experienced one server crash, outage, or other inconvenience.   So, if you are looking for a place to host your Roller-based weblog (or any other webapp) look no farther than Kättare Internet Services.


I had a very similar problem with LunarPages.com. They had constant outages and one day they shut down my JVM access telling me my code was at fault, but couldn't go into any more detail than that. I switched to Kattare and have now seen what good hosting is. A little pricey but the peace of mind is worth it.

Kattare have hosted my website for nearly three years in a mixed php/java environment. We have had only two significant outages in the 3 years, and in both cases I was able to reach support quickly and find out what the issue was, and it was quickly resolved. When I cannot reach someone when their offices are closed, I will call the emergency number (when truly needed). In every case someone either answers, or gets back to me within an hour or two (yes, they do not have true 24x7 phone support, but they are on a Linux platform - things seldom go wrong!). Once you reach someone, their service is truly incredible. I am not a programmer, nor do I have a website administrator on staff. Kattare will go out of their way to work through issues with me, including changing my code to close security vulnerabilities when needed. They are never condescending, and will take the time to answer questions when clarification is needed. Having been responsible for several web sites before, their service is the best I have ever experienced. As the COO, it is the best spent $39 a month I have ever authorized. I highly recommend Kattare.
