    I know how to manage windows. Linux is fine if it has cPanel. I need it to host several sites and to run cronjobs for checking PR, index info, etc. for a lot of sites.

    I read that hostgator VPSs are very slow. Is this the case?

    Has any body used vps.net?

    I used to use vpsland's windows VPS and I had to move away from them as I had to restart my container daily, because it was not responding. Then a year later I tried them again and with no luck too.

    I personally will not go there again.

    I've used Veeble Web Solutions for over 5 months now and they are excellent when compared with the other cheap VPS hosting I have used.

    vps.net - excellent but expensive.
    intovps.com - cheap and good
    santrex.net - many locations
    damnvps.com - uk
    nordicvps.com - germany

    i use wiredtree - check on webhostingtalk dot com in the offer section for good deals. fully managed with cpanel/whm, root access and they have phone and email support. Never waited more that 2 minutes on phone support and +- 1-5 minutes on email support +- 50$

    been with them for +- 7 months

    I've had a liquidweb VPS for nearly 3 years. Support is very good and quick. Not the cheapest but they are quality.

    Huge fan of KnownHost. Excellent support, servers are quick and can be had starting at $25 month.

    I am deciding between wiredtree and vps.net now. I see that quite a few use wiredtree. Final advice about these two would be very much appreciated.

    I haven't ever used managed hosting yet. Can I ask them e.g. to configure my domains and install WP there as this would save me huge amount of time?
