so you still use one the well known rails hosts sites for your actual

Use an external repository for your images that has unlimited bandwidth

I actually use Railsplayground.com for hosting the Rails sites on.
I’ve only moved about 20% of my images accross to the image hosting site
and I have seen a noticeable performance improvement plus my bandwidth
usage on the Rails host has dropped.
My image hist gives me all the bandwidth and drive space I need
(Unlimited) for a fixed cost Â£3.15 p/m with unlimited subdomains so I
use subdomains for my customers sites and a domain for the main images
that appear on all sites.
This has given me the possibility of hosting much greater numbers of
sites on my Rails host.
I didn’t actually worry too much about the cost of my project kicking
off because I knew that if it did then I’d be making money.
I started with a basic developer package and just up[graded when I
needed to with the full confidence that RailsPlayground would be happy
and willing to cater for all my future requirements.
The secret is to find a host you can trust that will work with you and
help you out.
