    I guess they all have their quirks.

    So far though, I've not found anyone to beat out these guys I've been hosting with for the last two years:

    www.dreamhost.goldenpath.org (http://www.dreamhost.goldenpath.org)

    Debian Systems

    Basic plan ($8/mnth) includes,

    • Unlimited Domains

    • 20GB Disk

    • 1 TB Transfer

    • 75 Shell Accounts

    • Lots of unlimited goodies

    • Very responsive to customer base feedback

    • Constantly expanding, very flexible

    Ruby is currently at version 1.8.2

    Rails 1.0.0

    Although, I like to control my own versioning and so I install my own ruby system under ~/local/

    phpwebhosting.com also supports Ruby. I emailed them about Rails and they said, "We currenly do not offer rails pre-installed, but you are allowed to install it onto your own account. We have clients who have done so." I personally host with them, and I've always had great service.

      Interesting considering that they're only on version 1.6.x of Ruby, and Rails requires 1.8+. Anyways, great hosting server that I recommend to everybody.
