Hosting recommendations for simple site

I am looking to deploy a simple portfolio site. This means it is not a
site that will get a lot of hits at least in comparison to a site that
offers some kind of service. This also means I am looking for something
that will not burn a hole in my pocket. I don’t need ssh and the
ability to deploy with capistrano or VLAD seeing as changes to the site
will be pretty minimal.

What I am looking for is something that is simple to deploy to and will
not cause me to lose to much hair during the deployment process.

Any recommendations or places to stay away from?

Are there any sites out there that allows users to rank hosting sites?

Thanks

In the “cheap and cheerful” VPS genre, I would go to SliceHost. 256 Mb
slice for $20/month is big enough for Apache and one, maybe two,
Mongrels.

Since they site will not have a lot of traffic I don’t think I will need
two mongrels running. I was also looking for something much cheaper
than that, more around the $5 mark per month. Is this realistic?

Ain’t know. Probably not. If you can make your site 100% static HTML,
then sure.

I’d give http://www.hostingrails.com a try. Low price, great service
and
the performance seems to be decent. Mongrel hosting starts at $10 a
month
but you can get fastcgi hosting for a lot less. Like $5.50 a month or
something.

Hi Chris,

Feel free to try our service, it’s not as cheap as $5/mo but you won’t
lose a single hair with the deployment process :)… it’s as easy as
just one click… also, if you pay one year you receive two months
free, so the final price would be around $8.30/mo.

Best regards,
Maykel

I have to second RailsPlayground. I think they have some of the best
support out there.

Before all the recommendations came in for rails playground I gave site5
a go and for the most part things are working well. It is for a small
site and one that I don’t expect a lot of traffic so I will keep it.

As for future project I think I will go with railsplayground, as it
seems to offer quite a bit for the price.

Thanks for the input.

Try R.Playground.com, they have developer accounts starting at 5.0
US $
You won’t need more for a simple application with a small number of
users/request

When you guys say that railsplayground provides good support, just how
good is it.

Right now with site5 it takes about a day before any of my questions are
responded to…and unfortunately that doesn’t mean they are answered.

At railsplayground is there as much support for the lower accounts as
there is for the upper accounts.

Thanks.

If is as good as you say I am assuming that deployment with capistrano
or is fairly easy to setup. Is that correct?
