Just wondered if f9 had any intention of providing support for Ruby on Rails, a web technology taking off quickly that requires fastcgi and mysql.

Just a thought as I am looking for somewhere to host a shopping site, would prefer to keep it with my ISP if possible.

This idea has been raised on the PlusNet forums and is included in the PlusNet UserGroup suggestion list (ID 105).

But I do not want to raise your hopes, as far as I am aware there are no plans to add it.

But some good news, once the mail server storage migration is complete, then some of the redundant servers are earmarked to expand the cgi servers.

I wouldn't recommend using f9 servers to run a busniss website off.

They are ok for hobby coding but your best best bet for a business class hosting service is
