Blacknight.ie advertises support for Rails on all its Linux packages,
for as little as €35 / year. If you envisage using lots of CPU or
memory (i.e. any Rails app with an appreicable number of visitors)
then you should get a dedicated machine, from Blacknight, Hosting 365
or any other provider (many ILUG people are happy customers of
Hetzner.de, although ordering a machine may be tricky without at
least a rudimentary command of German).
If you get a dedicated machine with a current distribution, it's
going to have a reasonably current Ruby, and rubygems, and once you
have those, Rails is a command or two away - I wouldn't call that
"configure the machine from scratch" - perhaps you would.
