I'm trying to host a small RoR website with

afford a dedicated server, so I'm guessing that
we will need a place that uses Mongrel.
I had similar requirements and went with a2hosting, primarily because they offered Mongrel and they were the only service that offered a 'pathway' from shared through VPS to dedicated hosting (I've got high hopes ). Prices are very good. Rails is already set up. Their support has been great. It seems like all Rails-related questions go right to the Level 3 folks. I do not have any personal experience with other Rails hosting servicves, but based on the complaints I see from others re: their providers, I recommend a2hosting for shared hosting of Rails apps.
