I'm also fairly interested in a VPS. I've considered doing colocation
but I can't justify the up front expense for the hardware since it's
coming out of my own pocket. Right now I have an old desktop on a DSL
connection running email for myself and a few others. If anyone knows
of a good VPS provider I would definitely consider using them, it sucks
when my mail server goes down everytime a thunderstorm rolls through.
I don't really need a lot of bandwidth and storage needs would probably
be less than 10-20GB for the near term. I do want something I can set
up how I like but dedicated and colo both seem too expensive so it seems
a good VPS is the way to go for me.
