Home > Rails hosting

“If it is Ruby on Rails, we can run it.”

Other hosts provide hosting. We provide hosting plus as much help as you need to get your site up and running.
Our sysadmins have each spent many hours setting up and tweaking Rails-based webapps. And they are more than happy to help you get your app up and running.

RoR VPS servers

RimuHosting has been doing Rails hosting since back in the day. We were providing Rails hosting from the 'get go' back in 2006.

Support worth raving about: What our Rails customers are saying

“These guys know their stuff, whether it's RoR, Java, ... I recommend them to all my friends and customers and they are so happy with Rimuhosting they are doing the same thing.”
- Peter

“I took a medium-sized PHP app and three Rails apps from a shared hosting environment to this VPS and had the entire thing working in 2 days.”

“I'm not a Linux sysadmin, but the help RimuHosting provided was first-rate and allowed me to get up and running very fast. I should mention that I had to make this move over New Years, so the promptness and accuracy of their responses was most appreciated.”
- cwd

“Their support was un-youknowwhat-believable. They answered all of my questions (and there were a lot) with blazing speed - usually within 30 minutes, no matter the time of day.”
- Larry

“A Rails stack that's UP TO DATE on Day 1? CHECK.”

“All the gems I actually wanted? CHECK.”

“Tech support guys that are WEIRDLY HELPFUL? CHECK.”

“Proactive? HECK yes.”

“Automated DNS tools and remote server reboots even without ssh access? CHECK.”

“Slick, cartoon-style web 2.0 marketing materials and hype? NOPE.”

“Hostile "please don't be stupid or waste our time" message to deter you from using the "Submit a Support Ticket" page? NOPE.”
