They don’t have rails 1.1.0. And I don’t think their ruby version is 1.8.4.
True, we still just have Rails 1.0 available but we’re looking at adding
Rails 1.1.0 soon.
The current version of Ruby installed on our hosting servers is 1.8.4.
I found their technical support useless.
I’m sorry that you had problems with our technical support. Any
support questions not answered satisfactorily should have been
escalated by our teams until a final resolution was found.
I have been successfully able to run a rails application from a sub folder in
my web space, but not from the root directory.
This is another area we’d like to address. Currently we support any
number of Rails applications in your home directory but as you’ve
found it requires using a directory path or a symbolic link.
One possible workaround, though, is to take advantage of our free
and alias offerings. Since a subdomain or alias is tied to a
directory, you’re free to setup an alias that points to your Rails
application’s public directory. Then, for that alias, there’s no need
to use the application’s directory structure in the URL.
They are cheap and good for registering domain names, but I won’t recommend
them for web hosting. I have an account there and I am planning to quit it
migrate to some other web host.
Search the archives, for knowing about other godaddy woes.
Well, we hate to lose customers, so I hope you’ll reconsider. I work
on the hosting development team and I can assure you we are
dedicated to improving and expanding all aspects of our product
offerings. We’re not just satisifed with having support for
Ruby on Rails applications, we’d like to make sure that it works well
with all levels of Rails developers. Please feel free to send us
feedback, suggestions, Gem requests, etc… and we’ll see what we can
