[ale] VPS hosting recommendations?



No, $20/mo is their current cheapest. I can only recommend what I know
about. At $5/mo I would be suspicious of boxes being over sold. Of
course, there's no guarantee that Linode won't over sell theirs, but I
haven't seen evidence that they do.

As I said in my original email, they provide excellent service. I'm
willing to pay for that.

As a side note, I only learned about a RAM upgrade available to me[1]
because of this thread. They tend to do this, upgrade the systems at
regular intervals (usually for free).
