Aruba is the best and cheapest cloud VPS provider.
Fast servers, free trial, good support - it's better than other companies.
Nothing more, nothing less.

Unmitigated Disaster
Marc Rizzo,

If you intend on using Site Five for hosting anything that has any importance whatsoever, like a business, you should just burn your business to the ground FIRST so you know what to expect in a few months of using Site Five. ... More You will lose your website data, your website and email will be down for weeks, customer service is worthless, they will shake you down for more money for things that don't without resolve the problem, you will end up going elsewhere after wasting weeks of your time.
Take your money and burn it for heat, it will provide more value than anything Site Five can offer.

Horrible experience

I tried several VMs - was never able to really use them. The most annoying experience is with access to VM - the remote access is simply hell! No way to access password change and the support is catastrophic.
