Well, I've used jails in the past in the same way I would chroot a 
specific process - apache, etc.  But I guess my question was more how they 
work if an entire system is operating as a jail versus a single process. 
But I've read up on the differences.

This is for a development environment for a new project, which will 
eventually move to dedicated hardware once the project grows.

There used to be a FreeBSD jail hosting provider (<something>host.com), 
but I can't remember what it was called.  This was 5-7 years back, if not 

I'm also considering these guys (http://www.rootbsd.net/).  Anyone 
recommend anyone else?
