claim: urweb based hosting may be more expensive / more complicated than PHP hosting which some people may consider being standard Around ur there is a community growing. The community is willing to help. If you have issues paying a server (for testing or other purposes) consider expressing your wish on the mailinglist. I'm pretty sure there will be a solution. Many different hosting providers (such as linode) let you install any linux system by doing some clicks. Then you can do whatever you want. There are other providers such as http://hostingrails.com/fastcgi_hosting which seem to allow cheap fastcgi based hosting (I didn't try that one). I'm personally very happy with linode because of the debug shell you can use and because of the virtualization system being used providing up to date kernels.
