An anonymous reader writes: With the recent flip-flopping of GoDaddy supporting SOPA, then not (in addition to other's complaints regarding GoDaddy), I have finally decided it is time to take my domains and hosting elsewhere... again.

In the past, I have attempted to move my sites elsewhere, but found that only virtual servers were available for the same price (this was a couple years ago). I tried a few, but found that my disk I/O requirements were in excess of what a shared system could provide--the site is heavily dependent on multiple databases, with 150k+ queries per day.

-Linux OS
-Core 2 Duo processor
-250GB Storage (dedicated)
-500GB Monthly Bandwidth
-20GB Remote Backup Storage
-2 IP Addresses
-Less than $130/mo
-No need for a control panel (I am comfortable with remote terminal sessions with ssh)

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

However, if you opt to give them a setu
