Overall Satisfaction with Jelastic

I'm using Jelastic for a personal project and it is working well for now. It's a simple Rails application with SSL configured (using Let's Encrypt). I just wanted a hosting service that was cheap and easy to manage and Jelastic fulfilled my needs.
  • Easy to use, the interface guides you to create your application.
  • Custom SSL certificate. You can upload your own certificates and it will configure them for you.
  • SSH is still tricky to use. You have to log in to a gateway and go to an option menu to get logged in. Sometimes it was not available or too slow.
  • Some errors are not clear enough. It took some time to understand which files I had to upload to get my custom SSL certificates working.
  • It has powered my project since its creation. It's a small project but I did not have any problems until now.
The price of Jelastic for the paid version (considering SSL) is better.
In case you want a cheaper PaaS that may be available in your country (Brazil, in my case), you may give Jelastic a try. There are some other strong competitors for the PaaS scenario with free versions, but the paid versions are far more expensive.
