I've been using RailsPlayground for around a month now, as I've been
learning Rails, and I recommend it.  Their service is prompt and
extremely helpful, and the price is a good deal.

I've found rimuhosting is the best solution for rails. Cop one of their
low-end VPS plans and you'll be super happy. I have one client on
dreamhost,
and it's ok but SUPER SLOW and very finicky with fcgi. I've heard people
have had problems with textdrive as well.

I run a dedicated box with rimu and they've been nothing but helpful,
prompt, and smart.

VPS virtualizes an entire OS, right? that is overkill for running a
rails app, youll get less out of the same hardware, and pay more for the
privelege. theres no need to access system-dirs for an app anyways. a
decent host will already have stuff you might want like various gems,
imagemagick, etc - if not theres always add $HOME/bin to the env.. check
out site5. railsbase looks promising, but theyve been 'coming soon'
since last september so ive had to steer business elsewhere..

couple of apps running of a serverpronto dedicated server. but I was
thinking about moving to a vps solution.

Im currently running 3 small (in traffic) sites of a 256mb ram server.

I have tried the reseller hosting purchased from Railsplayground: it is
very slow and unreliable, not recommended if you want to sell space for
small customers.

Actually, it's the best way to run a Rails app.  Rails on shared hosting
is problematic at best.

For cheap and easy deployment, I recommend Heroku or Slicehost.

That never works properly, at least not in my experience.  Sooner or
later you need root access.

Best,

I have found webappcabaret.com to offer the best choices for VPS and
Shared hosting. For some the VPS may be overkill because it also
includes regular
website management features (Plesk or cPanel). The neat thing about the
shared
plans, is that you can choose a specific Ruby and RAILS version for each
of your apps.
