Hi I'm trying to convice a client to use Rails for a new commercial web application. At the demo/preliminary stages, our monthly hosting budget is 20$-40$ (naturally it would increase with consumer demands). We need a fast, reliable host at that cost range. The application has to be fast, especially the AJAX parts. Also there's a lot of database-querying involved, so the database has to be fast and responsive. I cannot overstress this: if the request/response delay is too long, I won't be able to do the project in Rails. And if I go with an unreliable host, the whole project might be marked up as a failure and go down the drain. Could you suggest a suitable hosting solution? Regards, Alder G.
