Host recommdations

Hi
I want to host a simple site with Ruby
quickly

at first no DB - just a site that can run a Hello Ruby script
will use a template page

Also I am very new to this so help will be need

any suggestions for a Ruby Hosting service?

Some recommendations from a blog here:

I personally like Slicehost. Heroku looks interesting as well.

Heroku is free for now and works well. Hostingrails provides
inexpensive and decent shared hosting. I plan on moving to Slicehost
eventually.

You might as well try something free first! Sign up for Heroku here:

I've been using slicehost recently and I'm happy with it. The one
thing is that you do need to do a lot of the grunt work of configuring
the servers yourself (but they do provide loads of articles and step
by steps on how to do that).

You might want to see a post that Andre Lewis wrote recently comparing
some cheap VPS hosting options: http://earthcode.com/blog/2008/02/cheap_rails_vps_options.html

Most of the cheaper hosting plans will require you to get down-and-
dirty and do your own sys-config tasks. But there are some nice
scripts around that will help out. Andre also wrote another post
about using deprec at SilverRack to get his Rails app up in a few
minutes - http://earthcode.com/blog/2008/02/deprec2_mongrel_nginx_rails_my.html
