I'm a struggling and sometimes starving independent GIS Analyst/Web Developer trying to master Open Source mapping software.

For the past 2 years, I've been teaching myself JavaScript, jQuery, Python, OpenLayers, and of late, Leaflet which I like more than OpenLayers, plus Django/GeoDjango.

I also have GeoServer, PostGreSQL/PostGIS up and running on a web hosting service, WebFaction

Needless to say, gis.stackexchange, has helped me tremendously.

comment How to host my GeoServer+Openlayers web mapping application on the internet?
ok,um, baby steps first. Open up an account on webfaction. The minimum ram, database, etc will do for now. You'll need a domain name for your app. I'll edit my original answer as the powers that be on gis.stackexchange prefer a concrete answer to a question and not solved via comments. Let me know if you can convert a shapefile, etc to a geojson file

Will your app allow editing of geometry and attributes?

It's not a GIS web hosting service but it does supply PostGreSQL,PostGIS and all of the necessary libraries. You'll have to install GeoServer yourself as a custom app. I installed it within Tomcat
