So, unless there are any other surprises, I’ve chosen the web host, DreamHost. This host supports Rails 3.0 and uses Passenger, so I can avoid dealing with FastCGI, like I would with the other web hosts. [I’m hoping I don’t run into any future issues that would require me to use FastCGI]

Well, cleared up a couple issues on the server dealing with gems and should have a stable deploy. Now I can spend more time on the content of this site, YAY!
