For reference, http://www.serverbeach.com/servers/index.php?category=1
is what server beach would charge for various dedicated servers. Caveat,
all of these have bandwidth limits with charges if we go over. Further
Caveat, I used to work there.
Rackspace is way expensive, they are charging mostly for their support.
Myriad, run by the person whose renting out a couple of U to
twocrazyguys.net, has pricing on virtual servers. They also have
bandwidth restrictions. I can probably get a discount there, but not
alot of one.
