Thanks for the heads up, I'll check out Softlayer. How good is their customer service btw?

Linode is the best host I've ever used, VPS or otherwise, hands down. Their customer service is top-notch and fast. I'm currently running a Node.js websocket server, an RTMP server, and NGINX, across multiple nodes, and have never had any issues with resource contention. Their service is very straightforward and self-directed...you're simply given a shell with 1-click access to a variety of Linux distributions. You can do basically whatever you please, as long as its legal.
I've been with them for 4 years now, and have never seen anything better.
Their customer service is simply put, staggeringly good. There aren't many products I recommend whole heartily, but Softlayer is one. I've had about 6 occasions to call tech support over the 4 years I have used them, 3 of those occasions completely my fault. Every time I called I got a person on the phone within seconds, 4 out of 6 times that person that answered the call resolved the problem without need for escalation. A few of these support calls where at 2 or 3 in the morning too! The other 2 occasions that required escalation were resolved within 3 hours. In one case the second level tech spent over an hour on the phone with me to troubleshoot the issue.
They have never charged me a cent for support either, even when it was my ( actually Microsoft's ) fault!
