Pardon my ignorance but what does a Java hosting company do exactly 
compared to just getting a server?

I ask because for my small Erlang apps I just have a 3€/month dedicated 
and have next to no admin to do once a quick initial setup as I just 
push releases to it (the machine doesn't have nor need Erlang installed).

Supporting medium to big Erlang apps would require something closer to a 
basic "cloud" but same story past that point, just push the releases and 
be done with it.
