Hosting Rails Applications

Hi! :rocket: Hoping someone can help me out with a quick question:

I’ve got a few small Rails projects in the works, and I’m scratching my head about hosting options. I’m trying to dodge the multiple Heroku bill bullet if possible, you know what I mean?

What I’m dreaming of is having all these mini-projects under one main domain, each with their own subdomain, and a separate Rails app and git repo for each. Can anyone point me in the right direction to make this happen? :sparkles:

I’ve also toyed with the idea of throwing them all into one big Rails app and sorting them out with routes, but that seems kinda clunky and not-so-maintainable. Thoughts? :sweat_smile:

What are your price points? Linode can be relatively cheap. You can also host and serve on raspberry pi, could be peanuts over time (but you’d need to worry about backing up, loads etc). You can even try asking gpt for some ideas, although mileage can vary and you have to be pretty careful about making sure you get your security steps right (firewalls etc).

Hi! No particular price point but just want to avoid paying to host smaller projects. I’ll check out Linode though! And I’ve heard that is pretty good too.
