Heroku gets exponentially faster as you add resources; unfortunately it gets expensive quickly just like amazon web services. If you are fairly savvy, you could look at a VPS (virtual private server) to host a rails app. The site lowendbox.com has plans starting at $1/mo, though to get the resources needed for rails you might have to pay a bit more.

You guys are wrong, webhosting for students supports Rails (reply by Zac Gordon):

Hey folks, they do support Rails, but if you're after speed I wouldn't recommend student level shared hosting as you're first choice ;) they're fast servers, but they're setup for learning students not high performance applications, if that makes sense?
