Never heard of justhost.com . I mostly use Heroku or Slicehost for
Rails projects.

Best,

Hi Nicolas,

we are using JustHost. It is good, their support is friendly and
helpful - in hosting questions. They are definitely NOT for Rails
hosting - for example they didn't wanted to upgrade Rails 3, so they
only have Rails 2.3.8 (don't know exactly, we use it only for PHP, but
it was possible to upgrade the gems, so Rails itself also, but still
not suggest). They also don't have Django at the moment. Additionally
you have to pay extra money for SSH access.

We use it as a test server, making fast demos for many customers at
the same time. It's absolutely ok, the price is good, never had
problems, but if you are looking for Rails hosting don't use it!

Heroku is extremely good choice in the beginning.

Here http://www.hostingrails.com/ on HostingRails you recieve 1 year
for free (for a domain), and they are also helpful, patient for
beginners (I was totally 0 when I registered here). And I can suggest
their tutorials for deploying (what you can avoid by using Heroku).

If you have other related questions welcome in private, bests,
Zoltan

nicolas,

It depends on what environment you are looking for.
Stand alone or scalable cloud environment. I use Webappcabaret Cloud
(www.webappcabaret.com). I just uploaded my RAILS app and I was
up and running in a few minutes. They support both RAILS 2.x and 3.
Another neat thing about the service is the pay-as-you-grow
architecture.
Where your app can just be deployed to additional nodes as needed.

Some additional help source:

here you can easily compare them http://railshostinginfo.com/

I used this, gave me so many good views! http://www.railshosting.org/

About deployment their tutorials are quite useful. http://hostingrails.com

It really depends on your needs. For trying out Rails you don't need
any expensive or cloud.
good luck,
