Looking for a Linux based Virtual Server provider

I'm looking for a site to host my web server. I would like a virtual server if feasible using Linux. A while back I was using Start Logic which charged $14.95 a month. They had good performance and reasonable uptime a lot of times. However, when they had problems it was a major hassle dealing with them. I don't trust them and I haven't heard many good things about them. I was wondering what is the more popular virtual servers ISPs out there. Right now I can't afford some of these dedicated servers at $99 a month. I would like something smaller I can build off of.

UK based VPS

If you don't mind using a UK based host, have a look here -

I can't afford a VPS yet, so I have a Linux reseller package with 2 fixed IP's them running on CentOS. So far I have had 100% uptime, and the tech support is very good, fast and knowledgable. I haven't had anything they couldn't fix, including some stupid things I broke myself! The stuff that comes with the Reseller package is excellent, and the VPS is even better. I did quite a lot of research befoe I picked them, and went with the best compomise between price, features and what their forums said about them.

You can see a couple of the sites I host here:

Thank you for the info on the site. I actually prefer a UK site. Bandwidth costs in the USA are high compared to the rest of the world and I've always gotten better speed downloading off of European servers as opposed to American ones (We actually have one of the lowest bandwidth speeds of any industrial country). Costs is just about perfect as well. I must admit I prefer Debian (mainly because of performance and the package management system) but Red Hat isn't that bad. Thank you very much, I will record their info and definitely use them in the future.

PS. I checked out your sites and they run great. I think I found my new host site for the future.
