Although i'm not from the US NOR do I know of any railo hosting providers, I can say that deploying railo in AWS (amazon) is a piece of cake and there is no shortage of step by step guides on the internet (google-fu) that walk you though every step. Most of them will have you up and going in 15 mins tops.

I was looking for railo hosting myself, but due to the shortage of host out there that even know what rialo is, I elected to do it myself in AWS

Could you give an example or link to what you are referring to?
We use AWS to store media but am not sure what you mean by using it as a host (or substitute for a host).

You can provision a small amazon EC2 instance and install railo / tomcat / apache on it.

Here is just one guide I have found with a bit of google-fu (railo/tomcat/apache on Ubuntu).

Railo, tomcat, apache on amazon ec2

It is honestly quite easy to do.

Railo, tomcat and apache on Linux runs VERY well even on smaller instances.

I'm also sure there is an pre built Linux image with railo/tomcat and apache installed, for amazon somewhere on the internet as well, which is pretty much a spin it up and go kind of affair with very little configuration and setup required on your behalf (besides setting up hosts et cetera)

These skills are quite handy to have  (provisioning, configuring and hardening your own VM's) and are honestly worth the investment in time learning.

If your not comfortable with Linux, the windows (railo IIS) route, its simply a matter of choosing a windows based instance and installing railo / IIS role and then a little bit of hardening and absolutely no command line at all, but this will require instances that cost a little more than the Linux based ones (windows overhead, nothing real major)
