Cheaper rails hosting?

I have had an account with hostingrails.com in the past. I believe
their cheaper plan is like $10 a month and they have decent support. I
am not sure I can get much cheaper than that really, but I thought I’d
ask anyway.

I want to have a server so I can show some of my websites, but I
haven’t really much of a need for anything major at the moment or a
site that gets much traffic. Is anyone familiar with some cheaper
hosting plans ?

Have you looked into heroku.com combined with Amazon S3?

It is free for low traffic sites.

Heroku is free, and should do everything you need

S3 for any file storage you need to do (uploads) and the database is
already there – PostgreSQL only – so it’s a migration away. The
heroku gem makes the deploy process one-line-simple.

What about the database ? How does amazon s3 fit into the picture ?

You don’t want to store your assets on heroku so you normally use Amazon
S3
for that.
Database options:
Free tiny database on heroku
Free mongoid database on mongohq.com and probably mongolabs.com too
Probably other free databases available as well. Enough for small sites,
and
when you need a bit more you can get 256 MB at mongohq.com for $5 a
month.

wrong link, and it is 240 mb now at https://mongolab.com/home/ I guess
that’s what you can give with 3mil in the bank.
