    I'm looking to get a VPS, I don't need alot of resources, just something simple. Slicehost seems to have the cheapest option for entry level

    Or should I just get a thing from mediatemple or LW? Hostgator is just killing my PHP scripts with their 25 process limit. I figured VPS is easiest way.

    Slicehost is completely barebones, as in, you have to set up everything yourself. If you are going that route, might as well go with Linode over Slicehost. Same service but slightly better prices.

    Liquidweb wants to charge $50/hour for cpanel migrations... anyone know how I can do that myself from hostgator?
