What are the benefits of Rails Hosting?

One of the biggest benefits of Rails Hosting actually comes from the use of the Ruby language. When using Ruby, programming is simplified, requiring you to write fewer lines of code to get the job done. This bare-bones programming method allows for faster development and effective maintenance of your site. Another benefit of Rails hosting is the proficiency of the Rails framework itself. When using Rails, you just need to tell Rails where your database is located and it will do the rest for you. All of the functionality is pre-built into the framework, eliminating the need for large and code-heavy files.

Why should I use Rails Hosting?

DotBlock Stacks are beneficial to your schedule. The Rails Hosting stack comes with a pre-installed Ruby-on-Rails environment, saving you time that it would take to install the software yourself. On top of that, we fully manage the Rails updates so you can be sure that you're always using the most secure and up-to-date versions of the software. The scalability of your VPS is another reason to use Rails Hosting. You can quickly and easily scale your application to suit your needs, without costing a fortune.
