Simple Rails Business Hosting With Slingshot

We love Ruby on Rails – since 2005, all of our applications have used the web framework. But we don’t enjoy deploying Rails applications.

Announcing Slingshot – simple hosting for Ruby on Rails business applications. Why is Slingshot better than traditional hosting for Rails applications?

  • Slingshot is built by full-time Rails developers with dozens of applications in production. We’re intimately familiar with the framework and the ins and outs of optimizing the hosting environment.

  • Stability. We offer 2 plans – basic, with a maximum of just 4 accounts per/server, and dedicated, where it’s just you! We believe you shouldn’t have to spend your time worrying how other customers are effecting the performance of your Rails applications.

  • A ready-to-go deployment stack for Rails apps. We test every account with a robust Rails application using Lighttpd, MySQL, SSL, SVN, Capistrano, and ActionMailer.

  • Simple, easy-to-follow help documents. System administration is the hidden cost of maintaining and deploying Rails applications. Our guides are based on our work deploying our own Rails applications.

Take a look at our plans, and feel free to contact us with any questions!
