Web hosting options for Ruby on Rails applications
I am a Ruby on Rails developer and I am planning to purchase an hosting space in order to publish my web application (I'm developing a small Social Network). This is my first time that I try to deploy a Ruby on Rails application, so I am not expert on the matter.
I would like to find a "compromise" between performance and price. I think that for now a shared server it is enough (maybe) for my needs (suggestions are appreciated...).
In localhost I am using
- Ruby on Rails 3.0.9
- Phusion Passenger
so the hosting server should satisfy the above requisites.
More: in my application I am using the Paperclip gem so another requisite should be Image-Magick.
What hosting service do you advice for my needs? What should I have to care when I purchase a hosting space for RoR? And, most importantly, which hosting service do you advice?
P.S.: if you need some other information just ask and I will update the question.
