Are there web sites that offers hosting of a web application that uses c++? I know that there are a lot of free web hosting solutions that offers hosting for regular web applications made with php, mysql, etc. I would like to upload a routing engine for my website. My application is a travel planner, and I have a custom routing engine that is made of c++. If there are free online Linux OS hosting that can act as a ordinary OS installation (which will be my best option), I would greatly appreciate if you can list them below. Thanks in advance.

Where is your main site hosted? – Ewan Heming Mar 2 '11 at 21:58

With hosting costs coming down drastically over the years, it really doesn't make sense to gamble with a free hosting provider anymore. You should consider spending a few dollars and buy a decent hosting space. Amazon EC2, Dreamhost, GoDaddy, Linode, Slicehost etc. are good economical options to choose from. It also guarantees better uptime and performance.

GoDaddy sucks. I've tried them VERY slow. They are also NOT cheap, $60 or more for a year of hosting. – unixman83 Feb 15 '12 at 12:15

Amazon EC2 if free for one year. They support c++, so you can try it out. After that, though, you start paying.
