Ruby on Rails

Our company used to support Ruby on Rails. We no longer offer new systemwide versions of it, though, because the Rails market has changed. In particular, the Rails authors have optimized it more for “dedicated servers” or “VPS servers” (which we don’t offer), and current versions of Rails are much more difficult to set up on shared hosting than older versions.

While it’s theoretically possible for technically advanced customers to set up Rails from scratch on our servers using a local copy of Ruby Gems, that’s difficult and we don’t recommend it for most people.

Because of that, we recommend that customers who need Rails support choose a service that is optimized for that, such as the well-regarded Heroku.
