Where to host ruby on rails website?

Hi, Where do you host your ruby on rails website? I cant understand the heroku pricing. As before learning ruby on rails I was using shared linux hosting plans. Any Suggestions? Thanks. Sumeet

There are many hosting services to choose from. Here's a helpful comparison of a few of the more popular ones:

However, if you're just starting out with Rails, I recommend that you host your site on Heroku as it's one of the easiest to deploy. In terms of pricing, Heroku charges you based on usage. With their latest pricing structure, you can host an app anywhere from free (though your app will take 20-30 seconds to load if it's inactive for 30 minutes or more) to $7/month (your app never sleeps) to more expensive options that provide you with increased speed and the ability to handle more users.
