I use http://www.serverpowered.com/vps.php The developer server has Rails, mysql, postgersql, php, Apache2 and fcgi preinstalled and everything ready for use. The fact that it has 3 ip addresses also allows you to bind one ip address to Apache for production service and use another one for lighttpd development or testing service and such. Allowing you to restart end freely test without disturbing application that are in stable use. I just find that solution a little bit better than using multiple ports. Only thing I really had to change was that I had to manually install newer svn as CentOs only has version 1.1.

Except that serverpowered uses virtuozzo and not Xen. Save yourself the trouble and don't ever buy a VPS that uses anything other then Xen as the virtualization platform. It is way more performant then any other tech for virtualization. Rimuhosting has been most excellent to me. They are consistent and good tech support folks. I highly recommend them as a great VPS hosting provider. Cheers- -Ezra

I've had a try of RimuHosting as well and the _only_ issue I had with it was that I wanted to run quite a few sites on the VPS and the dispatchers (at 20/30meg a pop) ate up the 128M memory quite quickly. So i'm having a comparative look at unixshell.com (where you can get 256M for the same price) before I choose which one to stick with. Cheers, Dan

unixshell has some support issues you can easily google. I use PowerVPS, which offers a better deal than Rimu Hosting and has reputable support that'll respond to your emails within hours, if not minutes. They do use Virtuozzo, however.

I think we are almost to the point of saying - "My VPS is bigger than yours" - "My VPS can beat up your VPS" ;) I think the VPSs are pretty much all alike. There are these two main types. xen and virtuozzo. Xen seems to have better performance. Most of these like ServerPowered have almost instant activation and you can talk with the guy setting your's up and make special requests. I am however wondering if something like these can be useful if you have many applications running on your server. http://www.macminicolo.net/index.html http://www.iws-hosting.co.uk/mac-mini-hosting.htm It's a middlestep between running a full server and a vps. Low price and the added nicety of higher memory. You would however have to configure everything from scratch.

Those have low bandwidth allowances and high costs per excess GB. In another thread, Ezra wrote: <quote> But it sounds like you want a dedicated box(<$200). I have a few dedicated boxes at http://layeredtech.com. You can get a sweet AMD 3800+ with 1gig ram and 80gig hd for $89/month. Its hard to beat that price and they have a really good reputation on webhostingtalk. </quote> Their servers start at $65/month, with 1000GB bandwidth. regards Justin

for vps try a2b2.com - boxes in US & UK; cheap, good bandwidth allocation, stable, EXCELLENT service - you'll have to install yourself although i believe they offer semi-managed vps for a small extra charge (i'm a cheapskate and do it myself) vps come with a choice OS/control panel (or not) also does dedicated/shared/reseller
