Hosting recommendation?

Added by Peter Edstrom over 15 years ago

Anyone have a hosting recommendation? I'm looking for an easy setup for a private development project. I have shared hosting over at Joyant, but it has the wrong version of Ruby and I can't seem to upgrade it.

I'm sure I could hire someone to get it installed, but would ideally prefer to purchase a package with it pre-installed.

Any suggestions?

just search for rails hosting. A growing number of hoster offer rails hosting.
Shared Hosting with Ruby support is not enough to run ruby on rails :)

I've been with Slicehost for almost two years now and have no complaints. They just got bought by Rackspace but I'm not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing yet ;)

I'm in the process of setting up a couple of cooperatively-run colocated servers for hosting KVM virtual machines. Add your name to the list if you're interested.

You might also want to check out Planio. Planio is Redmine hosting that comes complete with SVN&Git repositories, and a couple of extras like start/stop time tracking, automated issue creation on exceptions, improved email dropbox functionality, etc. It's easily set up in <5 minutes and you can try it for free for the first 30 days.

Would love your feedback on this. (Disclosure: I work for Planio)

I would recommend as a good provider. About a year ago I chose them because of the low prices but mainly because they host Redmine out of the box. Together with Redmine you'll get personal SVN repository with secure HTTPS connection.

I've started with the Level 1 subscription that would be enough to maintain one project. During all this time I encountered not more than only 1-2 outages that lasted just few minutes. And it's very good result! Now I've upgraded to Level 2 that gives me infinite number of projects I can host.

You can run a BitNami Redmine AMI ( on EC2 using the AWS free tier (, completely for free if you stay within the usage limits. If you want automatic backups, monitoring, etc. you can also take a look at our reasonably priced BitNami Cloud Hosting (

Yup i used bitnami cloud and it took me less than 4 hours, including all the learning curve to get a redmine working and it just costedme 0.94 because i screwed following the bitnami tutorial, and there is a free developer plan for 1 server 1 app which is running pretty well, so both bitnami and amazon are pertty easy and awesome for redmine hosting

I am wondering if someone is still searching for better alternatives like me.

Most of the available options that provide ready-made Redmine servers put limitations on the number of users or projects or even features...which really sucks!

I found a new company ( that breaks the rule. Has anyone given it a shot?

You may try fast and stable hosting from RedmineUP.

You don't need to update Redmine, install plugins or monitor application and infrastructure at all. It's ready to use (with free data migration) and free to start.

It's nice to have 19 plugins extra, such as Agile, Helpdesk and CRM and free support from they team.
