Re: VPS shopping any ideas?

Get one owned/operated by a non-US company.
Also check to see if the data centre is owned by a US-based company.

I hear that the data centres in the Maldive Islands are soon going to be water-cooled

I'm definitely looking for a non-US/non-Canadian owned VPS, I just don't have any idea what I'm going to be getting yet, probably some type of virtual Ubuntu or Debian box with an OpenVPN or SSL/SSH connection back to another Linux box at home.

Europe sounds pretty good, I'm also interested in finding out what features are good, essential and not worth getting.

I'm watching District 9 again, and I've come to realize something: Wikus's got it all wrong. If I were morphing into a 9 foot tall hyper-dextrous alien that can shoot lightning bolts and get high off cat food why would I ever want to become human again?
