I understand you will find lots of existing questions about Django hosting etc but my real question is whether there's a technical reason RoR hosts are simpler to manage than Django hosts. Can there be something within the technology itself or even the architecture that causes it to be much more of a problem for companies to host and gaze after?

It's both apparently simpler to locate better free hosts for RoR compared to Django (10mb from alwaysdata really does not permit a great deal and Application Engine is not a vanilla Django) and simpler to locate decent RoR hosts for just twoDollarOr30 days full of features compared to Django.

's the reason technical or simply due to share of the market/timing?

Thanks, Xiao

Let us face the facts, free hosts are not near good, and nor are extremely cheap ones. If you prefer a decent host, you'll have to pay a respectable amount.

However, rails is almost 12 months over the age of django, and began to popularize way sooner than django did. Also, php being older and made popular earlier, it appears a very good reason for rails to become popular with hosts than django.

Django it's not harder to host than RoR.

IMHO this offering delta can there be mostly due to the share of the market the RoR has in comparison to Django.

If it's correct that rails is over the age of Django, it is also correct that Python is older (and utilized by more and more people) than Ruby.

Additionally a technology like WSGI which makes things simpler for web programs had been there when such like arrived on the scene for Ruby (Rack).

I believe it's less timing and much more community push, myself. There's an very active and vocal community behind Rails. Go lower for your local book shop and have a look in the books there. You'll most likely find 5x the quantity of Rails books that might be over Django. Because it is stated, the squeeky wheel will get greased. There's a powerful vocal minority of Rails customers, which implies that individuals will focus on them on shared hosts, because otherwise they've got to pay attention to numerous demands that keep requesting it.

Not saying that point-in-market does not have something related to it, I simply discover that the city behind a technology offers quite a bit related to it's degree of adoption in various business models.

Also, any host that hosts Ruby applications can host nearly the major frameworks, as lengthy because they are Rack compatible. So for needing to cope with Rails, they often get support for Sinatra, Ramaze, etc, free of charge. Rather than just supporting Django.
