Aye, I'll put in a vote for UML hosting. I was considering linode.com (heard
good things), ended up going with http://www.rimuhosting.com. (Both provide Debian, a
personal preference, but when you're going to be responsible for admin, better
be happy. :) Rimu has been very responsive with support requests and providing
free suggestions on hardware/software requirements.
I'm running apache/apache-ssl, webware, postgres, exim, and horde php webmail,
and straining to stay within 128MB RAM. 64MB might work for a light
Webware/Apache setup though.
P.S. Oh, and free DNS with zoneedit.com
