So I got a new colo machine today. I was previously using a service called unixshell#, which was based on xen. In general I've had mostly good experiences with unixshell#, but I noticed that they were directing people to their new offering running on virtuozzo, TekTonic, with a price that's hard to pass up. For $15 a month I get
256MB Dedicated RAM
10GB Disk Space
1.0 Mbit Unmetered (equiv. 320GB)
1 IP Address
So far I'm pretty happy. I've already noticed that the virtuozzo setup caps the disk IO. Normally this would be a bad thing as my performance on IO heavy tasks isn't great, but it also means that other users on the same hardware can't destroy my performance by running find. The best part of the whole thing was my unixshell# machine was magically migrated to the virtuozzo host, which took zero time on my part for this migration to happen.
I figured I'd give TekTonic my praises and let anyone looking for a decent inexpensive shared hosting colo a place to look.
