    I keep going back to Linode - never had any problems. Can upgrade anything on the spot (RAM, storage, transfer, IP's), pick where its located (and change that at any time), and so on. I mainly use my VPS for personal crap - mainly testing out things - don't have anything out in the open for people to see. 25k+ posts on their forums, and an IRC room with 287 users at the moment. Availability sheet here

    managed or unmanaged?

    if you want to go managed, i absolutely love both wiredtree and liquidweb. cant go wrong with either of those.

    for unmanaged, ive heard good things about linode.

    Check out wiredtree

    I've been with them for almost a year. Incredibly fast support and awesome network.

    most of the time managed stuff is when say if you have a problem, hardware or software, they'll fix it for you. but typically not software related items like if you cant get a php script to work. it's more like if you can't get a web server running they'll get it all configured and ready to go. non-managed means it's up to you to figure it all out unless you want to pay them by the hour if that's even available. explains why there's a big price difference too ;)

    i have linode.

    it's kinda expensive. not to mention they have a cpu cap/overcharge which is kind of a turn down. i might switch
