I am looking at moving my first Rails application to production. In my search, HostingRails comes out as a good option for hosting the app... any folks care to share their experiences with this provider? Or your thoughts on the preferred provider. Cost IS a major consideration. Regards, Rajesh

Hi Rajesh, I would suggest you take a look at http://www.RailsHostingInfo.com, where you can compare (on price) several other good Rails hosting companies. That way you have a good idea what your options our with your budget. Kind regards, Nick

hi rajesh, I use hosting rails. i currently have the 'free' plan that they were offering a few months ago. i am on a shared host running fcgi. as far as i know, i am VERY pleased with their service, options they have, and their quick reply back with any questions i have. the forum they have also is very helpful. everything that i have done by following tutorials online works like a charm. i highly recommend them!

If you could give a little more info about your needs I can suggest a more targetted solution. Is this a commercial venture or more of a hobby or experimentation? You say cost is an issue. Shared hosting will be cheaper, but your performance will vary, and you may have more restrictions on what you can do in the way of plugins and such.

Thanks for the response folks... appreciate it. I am designing a site for internal use of a worldwide NGO. Initial usage will be from about 1000 total users and is expected to scale to about 5000 in a year more. Since it is a non-profit NGO, cost is an issue. Trust this clarifies. I know this is primarily an opinion-based question, but if anyone has had bad experiences with hostingrails, it would be great to know in advance, that's all. Otherwise their costs agree with me and I would be quite willing to sign up for their 1 year deal. I did have a look at Railshostinginfo.com. The rates shown there are different (at least at hostingrails). Regards, Rajesh PS: I did send a mail yesterday to HostingRails asking them how I can use NaviCat MySQL to manage my databases with them. I dont have a response (24 hours, fingers crossed!). By the way, <mixplate>, can I do that?
