(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Leading domain name register and hosting provider Gandi announced today the availability of Ruby programming language instances for its Simple Hosting Platform-as-a-Service customers. Gandi added the Ruby platform in response to demand from users, developers and community members, to allow Ruby developers rapid deployment of applications to production-ready environments on Gandi Simple Hosting.  The Ruby instance of Gandi Simple Hosting is available starting at the same price as all other Gandi programming language instances, $4.00 a month.

“Gandi is continuously working to integrate feedback to enhance and extend our hosting offers,” said Thomas Stocking, San Francisco-based COO of Gandi. “The Ruby instance builds on the success of our popular PHP, Node.js and Python platforms and is at the same low cost that Gandi customers have enjoyed for over two years now.”

Any Ruby on Rails or Rack platform application can be deployed in moments using Git and SSH, the familiar, scriptable commands that most modern developers know and love.
