    This looks great value, does anyone have any experience with them? How is their Rails hosting?

    I’ve been hosting with Bluehost for more than 3 years, and so far I can recommend them without any hesitations. The service has been great, it generally takes a very short amount of time to get someone from the Customer Service on the phone. I do not know about the Rails portion, but it is nice to know that Bluehost has it in its supported features list.

    Their hosting is great! We use them and haven’t had any problem with them. Excellent customer service and reliable hosting service overall.

    Their rails hosting is weak. After much distress and customer service calls trying to deploy my App I ended up finding HostingRails.com, after that I had no more problems.

    I would NOT recommend Blue Host for hosting Rails Apps, for general web stuff they are pretty sweet though. I’ve been using them for about 2 years with no problems (save the Rails issues) and over 99.99% uptime.

    I’ve been with them for a while.. switched to them because the stated rails support so that if I ever finish my rails app I could deploy….

    Their own rails CPanel wizard fails to launch the initial rails stub… and their live support isn’t much help with rails. I was told rails was only used once in a “blue moon” so I’d have to contact their top-level support guys via a support form. Haven’t bothered to yet since I’m not ready to deploy anyways & I am hoping they get there act together.

    As for rails, they are not so great. Everything else… A+, including the price! :D
