I'm looking to switch web hosts, my custom Ruby on Rails content management system has been hosted on site5 for about 6 months and recently their level of service has absolutely tanked. Last weekend my site went down for no apparent reason, I had not changed any code, I hadn't done anything different. After 6 or 7 support tickets spanning 4 days I finally figured out on my own from a cron job email that the mySQL server needed to be restarted. This past weekend the hard drive on my server went belly up (which I know happens to the best of them) The problem arose when the server was restored, all of my sites were back except the one with the Ruby on Rails application. So, back to square one I go with tech support "Do you have any specific gem dependencies?". Yes check my 12 other support tickets from the last week, and stop breaking my app. GRR So this is my problem. I'm looking for a reliable host with spectacular service, who knows more about keeping people's RoR apps from imploding due to regular maintenance. I'm seriously considering media temple, but they are currently beta testing their RoR package, which is supposed to be "available in the future". So, I don't know if I want to commit to them based on reliability and possibly wait months to put up the site I really switched for. I've looked at A Small Orange, they would be ok if their bandwidth was higher. 100g/month is a bit weak, especially for $30/month. I've also looked at TextDrive, who I think has inflated their prices just a little due to the popularity of RoR. So, any suggestions are welcome. My base requirements are as follows: 5gb+ space 500gb+ bandwidth Ruby on Rails mySQL Ability to host 20-30 sites lighttpd - maybe Max price $30/month Currently my site5 plan has: 27gb space 750gb bandwidth RoR, mySQL Unlimited sites $15/mo All suggestions appreciated.
