Heroku offers free hosting space with an easy deployment process
(especially regarding database setup, which can be a bit of work to
configure a DB user, create/grant access to tables, ... )

To start, you first install the gem:

gem install heroku

Then, you need to register for a free account, and you can provide ssh
keys for authentication

and with heroku --help should also give some good starting information.

If you want to have some custom server configuration, and you want to
setup your own system, the Railscast on Vagrant might be a good start:

+1 on Heroku.

Hosting for a very basic app (like a staging app) is free, depending on
what features you want. You can learn more about it here:

I use it all the time.

i believe that heroku is a community staple, and it is free. also
engineyard is a very nice tool, i have heard that it is great for
because they will set you up on a dedicated server. also i hear Blue Box
Group is a great resource to use though i have not looked into their
services as deeply.
