    For a reseller:<br />
    * You need ssh acccess for setup rails environment.<br />
    * If you have an ssh access on any of your domains, you have to pay 10$ for ssh access on other domains.<br />
    * There is no fcgi or mongrel support, just cgi and very slow.<br />
    * Support services are incredibly slow.

    Bad host for rails--turns out they don't support fcgi, which means that each time you request a page, it has to restart it's server, from the ground up. This is very very bad for load times for rails pages! Avoid!

    Support service within 2 hours, they activated fcgi on my applications. Maybe they listened to your complains.
