UK Web host,, deploys Ruby on Rails 2.0

UK-based Web host has deployed Ruby on Rails 2.0.

The new Rails hosting solution is based on the company’s powerful and reliable virtual private server (VPS) hosting platform. The basic plan features a generous allocation of RAM.’s VPS servers use quad Xeon technology.

The basic plan is competitively priced and fully geared for support out of the box. The company also offers a variety of add-on services, including Plesk control panel software.

Ruby on Rails is a popular programming language and Web application framework. It helps to speed up the creation of complicated, database-driven Web applications and keeps the tedious bottom layer code hidden from view.

“Ruby on Rails doesn’t work well in a shared hosting environment, so to take full advantage of its benefits you’ll need your own server,” Daniel Foster,’s technical director, said in a statement issued to the press.

“A full dedicated server can be prohibitively expensive, so the VPS hosting solution provides the ideal stepping stone. The Rails VPS is already configured to run Rails applications with an Apache front-end, so you’re free to get coding right away.”
