Yes, BTC Guild is offering VPS services.  While there are cheaper options, I stand behind my hardware performance.  Quite a few of the users came from Linode and benchmarks show we perform the same or better everytime, while a new batch of nodes are being shipped out this month with even better hardware.  Total network downtime since the start of the trial run has been less than 3 minutes (using 1-minute resolution for the heartbeat monitoring) in the last 3 months, while hardware uptime is 100%.

However, it is still labeled a trial run - Not because the service is "beta" or in any way unreliable, but because I'm not ready to start offering the services to the public outside of the Bitcoin community.  I'm working on quite a significant overhaul of the control panel and billing systems to make upgrading servers and creating your own virtual cloud as easy as it is on Linode, which I want to have in place before starting to market my company's services to the general public.

A good hosting service is Hetzner Online: http://www.hetzner.de/

For example, a dedicated server 32GB DDR2, 3TB mirrored storage, 1GBit conenction 59 euros (77 dollars) per month.

A basic VPS is 7,90 eur month (10 dollars).

They don't accept bitcoin as a payment. However hosting is a business of scale - if you really want to use bitcoin vps providers, you have to have other reasons than just the "coolness factor", such as anonymity or something. You can't really compete with Hetzner if you look at the features/price.

I am looking for a VPS as well. Does anybody have an estimate on how much bandwidth a month I need to run bitcoind? Thanks.

I too spend about $100/mo at Linode. My main reason is their network access policy that specifically allows me to run TOR exit nodes.

If someone can suggest a VPS who's TOS will allow me to maintain my exits, I will be MORE than happy to take my $100/mo from Linode and give it to someone else.

Would you mind making TOS addition with something like:

Quote
btclot.com does not prohibit the use of distributed, peer to peer network services such as Tor, nor does btclot.com routinely monitor the network communications of customer vps as a normal business practice. However, customers are responsible for the contents of network traffic exiting their vps. Any usage that prompts the receipt of abuse complaints pertaining to violation of United States and/or international copyright law must be promptly discontinued to avoid service cancellation for violation of these terms.

I have several VMs running at bitvps atm and can recommend them without any kind of hesitation. Their service has so far been really fast and rg has been really good about helping out etc if there have been any issues. He even did a security audit for me on some stuff I paid a third party to have setup so overall a really good experience with "handholding" as needed. I haven't tried the new managed service he's offering but am atm seriously considering it for another project I'm working on.

Not quite what you're after, but look at this:

https://tools.bitfolk.com/redmine/issues/63

This isn't that interesting until you know that this issue was created by the owner of bitfolk.

Perhaps with a bit more interest (I wouldn't like to suggest what method of expressing that interest, since it's very easy to descend into "annoying spammer" when trying to promote bitcoin).

Personally, I'd love it if http://bitfolk.com/ accepted bitcoin; it's run by a really competent techie guy, and is small enough to offer excellent customer service.

The objection from the owner is that "the accountant doesn't know what to make of it".  I wonder how many other potential-bitcoin businesses are being held hostage to overly-conservative accountants?

A few months ago I asked Linode(my VPS) if they would accept Bitcoin as payment. They said no. So, I went onto their IRC channel and asked the people there why not. I got laughed at and scolded.

So, today I tried it again. Again, ridicule. You would think that intelligent techies at Linode would be able to wrap their heads around Bitcoin a little easier than the average dolt. But no. They're too brainwashed.
This is exactly how Linode and their fanboys responded to IPv6 support requests for almost a decade. They're clueless about security, technology, PR and business. Shy away.

Price looks good. I'm in for one for now. I'll see how the TOS works out with my TOR exit and will probably get 5-6 more next month if it all works out.

I sent them this e-mail directly after the Linode incident:

Quote
Hi Linode,

I've noticed the current security incidents with your company. I have no
stake in these issues, but as a computer professional I'm disappointed
about how these issues are handled by Linode as a company.

The press release
(http://status.linode.com/2012/03/manager-security-incident.html) here
reveals very little, please provide the internet community with detailed
truthful information, and if it's a Linode insider that's behind the
robberies, he should be handed over to the authorities immediately.

I also assume that you're working closely with law enforcement to get to
the bottom of this issue. I'm afraid you reputation is damaged now, and
the best you could do is to attempt to repair it.

I will advise any of our clients not to use hosting with Linode, as the
handling of this security breach is raising a lot of questions, that are
still unanswered.

Unsurprisingly I never received an answer from them, but I'm sure to advise all not to use them.
I usually keep hosting companies within reasonable travel distance, so I can go and talk to staff
in person should the  need raise anyway.

BitVPS are *delighted* to have DailyAnarchist.COM on our servers.

Seth, the owner, has been a pleasure to work with and we are now glad to say that DailyAnarchist is BitVPS Powered.

Anyone else looking to vacate from Linode can receive the same discount I gave DailyAnarchist.

Pop over to #bitvps or simply email james/sales@bitvps.com

Cheers guys!
