>>700>I get the impression a lot of these VPS providers are quick to shut down machines by customers that didn't purchase DDoS protection, when they're the target of one.
I lost a dedicated server that way.>>702
It was instantaneous, I didn't even have to reboot.
With RamNode, can you use your own OS, or do you have to use some image they provide? I was thinking about doing a web project of my own and I found a good LAMP stack bundle thing so I'd rather do that than whatever Linux distro a VPS host might provide.
Not sure, you should email them. I'm just using Debian.
OpenVZ is limited to a selection of Linux distros. With a KVM instance you can upload your own ISO to install whatever you want.
Update: We moved servers a few months ago due to a virus infection on the previous server, as well as a need for upgrades that couldn't be done in place, and I have consolidated stuff so that we're only costing $13 per month now. I haven't needed any donations for a while.
