Yep- these guys are awesome- I can't recommend anyone better.

quick personal sidenotes about them JohnCompanies:

1) They were the only competetitors for my old web hosting company,  
iMeme- we had the same hosted jail(8) systems- back before all the  
big ISP's offered all the VPS packages.  They were always friendly  

2) I met the 'John' owner last summer at DefCon, after my lecture on  
jailing :)  Nice as can be.

3) I've got client systems with them, and simply put, it's a tight  
ship.  Clean stock FreeBSD, as it should be. :)
