It's about the developer, not the language. Just write good code and the language at the beginning won't really make a difference. If you like rails but you are more comfortable with PHP, maybe you could try CakePHP or Codeigniter. Even Python/Django could be an option you should consider.

Also for RoR you could use Heroku that makes deployment a breeze, but definitely when it comes to resources Ruby is way more expensive than PHP.
