The fastest I have seen is cytexone out of new york.
Pros:They have an extremely fast cluster and for a shared option they
may be a way to go.
Cons: Not much rails experience so geting things done may take longer
Pros: Great rails support (keeps gems up to date), Super fast support
tcket response time. Generally they know what hey are doing. cpanel
mongrel support (read no pain with apache directives)
Cons: You may want a Virtual Dedicated, pretty inexpensive plans. The
shared option is good, but when your app gets popular, it can max out
the resources pretty fast. (I had two apps on one account and 850,000
hits in one month and we had to make the move.)
Pros: lots of resources, excellent tutorials, virtual dedicated
Cons: You must configure from base OS image ie Ubuntu Gutsy so if you
have experience with that then go to it.
Pros: slick admin panel, compartmentalized apps. Good support
Cons: I’m not sure the grid computing has been cooked long enough
yet. They seem to have some speed issues.
Hope this helps
