    servint and hostgator are not even in the same universe. I now use servint vps and used to use hostgator shared. No comparison at all, servint is orders of magnitude better.

    Too bad knownhost isn't on the list. They're great.

    Be sure to check out linode.com before you make your choice. They are the best I have ever used.

    No idea if they do vps but singlehop has been fantastic for me. I pay $300 a month for a 12 gig quad core dedicated box and its fully managed. I've had great response times even at 3 am. Nice dealing with American company too for once.

    I suggest that you decide what support mediums you like to have and trim your list based on that. Some people insist on phone support, and some companies do not provide that. Besides HG and servint - both of which have phone support, I've no idea about the others on your list.

    And of course I've no idea if you want phone support.

    EDIT: Yikes!! Also consider how sensitive you are to price, there seems to be a huge amount of disparity in your list.. and I've no idea what the media temple service is, they do not list vps accounts for rent.

    managed or unmanaged?
    if youre looking at unmanaged, linode cannot be beat.

    Another "What VPS host" post. I hear XenForo 1.0.0 has a search function built in. :whistle:

    Linode +1

    As others have already stated, I think Linode is the way forward.

    +1 Linode.

    Most of MediaTemple's plans are VPS', http://mediatemple.net/webhosting/ (e.g., dv, dpv/nitro, ve).

    I use them, myself. No complaints. Though some may find them expensive. Linode is great, as well. You might want to carefully consider how much it would cost you to scale up, if you feel you might outgrow your initial plan. With some providers, scaling up may be costly.

    LiquidWeb have good choices, but they use CentOS 4. :/ MediaTemple, mixed reviews.

    Out of those:



    Those are the best.

    No. They give you the option to switch between the two. I hosted with them for a long time and I was on CentOS 5

    LiquidWeb sales informed me that they offer CentOS 4 only due to the lack of interest in CentOS 5.

    That is correct. The OFFER it. They give you the choice of the two.

    They informed me that only CentOS 4 was available, though I could put it down to poor wording.
