I would definitely recommend 64-bit on a server. As for CentOS/Ubuntu, I would recommend Ubuntu because I prefer debian-based systems to Red Hat-based systems (for many reasons).
I have hosted static and php websites on GoDaddy. I've heard some people complain about GoDaddy, but they were always great for me and at the time, I was comparing prices and GoDaddy was a great value. They have shared hosting plans that include java. Another host that I always hear great things about is Rackspace.
A couple other hosts I've heard about that also have dedicated hosting are Site5 and Dreamhost. I would trust anyone of these hosts with my website. You just have to look and see who has the options you want at the best price.
