> All good points.  One thing though, you should seriously look at some of the rails hosting companies like Rails Machine, Rails Playground and Engine Yard.  Yeah, yeah they're "rails".  But, even more importantly they're *RUBY* hosting.  You don't have to run Rails, and I'm sure if you talked with one of them they'd be interested in expanding their business to encompass other frameworks.
