Java Server

I was planning to create an online games-server, with a Java server-side application. If I run java [classname] serverside, will people be able to connect remotely?

Basically, can I run a custom-made java server on Dreamhost?

I do know that Java is installed on shared servers, I found that through the support FAQ.

you might want to search the knowledgebase, wiki, forums for “persistent process” as well, it’s not allowed on shared hosting.
