I'm learning ruby, rails and have poked around to see what rails hosting 
options there are.  Below are a few sites I've book marked after having read 
the info on the site fairly thoroughly.

I still haven't decided.  I think I've got to put band width, storage, 
deployment method and other differences into perspective; before I can choose.  
The one thing I have started picking up around the net is that if your rails 
app is going to have lots (say several thousand) users, people are turning to a 
"mongrel cluster" with apache or lighttpd as the front end reverse proxy.  I 
won't need anyting like this in the beginning; however, I do know that people 
say ror apps require more machine power then php or perl.

Of all the hosting sites I've looked  at seems to be 
pushing support for mongrel as there strong suit.

Hope this helps
