I think you will enjoy Heroku. I can invite you (and anyone else if they're interested) if you'd like.

Re: Do we have a something like free web hosting supporting rails

Hmm.. cy-ro Heroku is free? I'm new to rails and I'd love to find a hosting company (ad-supported or not) that will let me host hobby apps just to get a feel for using rails and deploying.  If you can.. please send an invite. It looks promising!

I love this forum!

Re: Do we have a something like free web hosting supporting rails

It would be worth the effort to get a paid host. I don't think you have any public options.

The main reason being that deploying a rails app is hard for beginners and it will almost certainly involve communication between your and your hosting provider. They need to set up mongrel ports, any gems you require, and help you out when you get that random/unexpected error.

I use OCSSolutions and they offer cheap shared hosting with no set up fee plus great support. http://ocssolutions.com/hosting.html

Re: Do we have a something like free web hosting supporting rails

Hey thanks intrudah! I'll look into OCSS.  I haven't deployed anything yet. Still reading books/tutorials/ and playing with my local installation for a few more weeks. Baby steps...

But when I do I didn't want to have to go through the hastle fof setting up a rails server that I'm just gonna be using for hobby stuff. I Just wanted a sandbox environment, thats why Heroku looked interesting. Who else here uses Heroku? And what are other cheap simple Rails hosts you'd recommend for test apps?

I currently host a non-rails VPS on mediatemple and I noticed they recently offered a rails solution. Might look into them as well. Maybe i can use them on my current account.

I appreciate the incite folks!

Re: Do we have a something like free web hosting supporting rails

What what do you know... I feel.. pretty dumb. Mediatemple allows me to host Rails/Mongrel Cluster on my DV. I Just have to install it myself. Sweet!

Re: Do we have a something like free web hosting supporting rails

I won't exactly call it hosting because it's something more than that.  GO to mor.ph and sign-up to test deploy your rails apps.

Re: Do we have a something like free web hosting supporting rails

I would like to tell you about free web hosting service I use now.
Register here: http://tinyurl.com/4939nf

They give 1500 MB of disk space and 100 GB data transfer. I am now using them for about 3 months and never seen any downtime of server problems. There is no any kind of advertising on my pages too, so I think its worth to signup.

Re: Do we have a something like free web hosting supporting rails

You can find many free web hosting sites. But when considering free web hosting why not look for a cheap web hosting it will save so much headeichs. You can check it for one.com and maybe you will consider this almost as a free web shoting
