Apache Tomcat, or simply Tomcat (formerly known as Jakarta Tomcat), is an open-source web server and servlet container developed by the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). Tomcat implements the Java Servlet and the JavaServer Pages (JSP) specifications from Sun Microsystems and provides a "pure Java" HTTP web server environment for Java code to run.
Hosting Requirements for Tomcat Java
Tomcat Java is not available on Shared or Reseller servers; however, it is available for the following:
- Linux or Windows Dedicated Server.
- VPS Snappy 2000 or higher.
For Linux, Tomcat is installed as an addon in cPanel; for Windows, it is installed as an addon in Plesk.
Available Installation Versions of Tomcat Java
Our admins can install Tomcat 7 free of charge on Windows Dedicated Servers with Plesk. Linux VPS/Dedicated Server plans that have cPanel running EasyApache4 can only install Tomcat 8.5 at this time. Servers with EasyApache3 will require an upgrade to EasyApache4 before Tomcat can be installed.
