The Network Solutions hosting platform now supports Ruby on Rails.
Users of the service will be able to install RoR applications with an
auto-installer. Ruby on Rails (RoR) is a popular, open source programming framework that makes developing web based applications
quite easy but the process for installing RoR applications in most hosting environments is
cumbersome, especially if you don't have a solid understanding of UNIX.
"We heard from the developer community that it's often difficult to integrate Ruby on Rails applications in hosting environments," said Bill Jolly, director of Hosting Product Management for Network Solutions. "Our hosting team saw this as an opportunity to differentiate the Network Solutions hosting platform from the competition by pre-configuring our servers and implementing a quick and easy way to install RoR applications."
