Topic: Recommended web host for a student project? Noob friendliness needed!
I'm doing a rails app for my degree project and want to get it live, mainly so other people can see it. So, my priorities for a web server are:
- cheapness (sub $10 a month)
- helpfulness (i've been ruby/railing for only about 6 weeks and have never done any prior web dev so am still fairly unsure about what i'm doing a lot of the time)
- reliability with sub-massive amounts of data/traffic (i'm not expecting to make the next twitter, though that would of course be cool)
Can anyone recommend a server? Normally i know railsmachine get recommended but they're out of my amateur league. Are bluehost good? Was tempted by them.
Any advice welcome, preferably from other ex-newbies who've stumbled their way through this sort of thing before.
