With VPS hosting becoming a more popular option among the techies, I’ve been tempted to get one. Among the reasons you’ve like to get a VPS include:-
- You need root access
- You wish to install a distro of your choice
- Want more capabilities than offered by standard shared hosting
- You have Ruby On Rails or Python Based Web Apps you want to host
- Because you can :D
This diagram, taken from Google Trends shows VPS Hosting search to be picking up since late 2004. I think is times pefectly with the release of Ruby On Rails to the masses.

Anyway, I found this site with cheap VPS hosting, some going for as low as US$3 a month. The reliability of these providers maybe questionable, and I don’t think they can compare to the big guns.
Here’s the link, do comment on your experiences.
sigh Now to prepare for trackbacks from bots tracking the word VPS :P
