Have you thought about colocating your own OpenBSD server? I prefer to go this way for dedicated servers since you don't have to rent the company's machine which I'm sure it will cost additional for the hardware, possible setup fees, and other underlying fees.

Googling with the keywords "openbsd" and "hosting" should give you the names of several companies that offer such services, on the first page. You may be able to find reviews of them by searching the misc@ archives.

I know you want to use Open, but if you want an inexpensive yet bullet-proof web host, do look at Westhost (Utah, USA). You get a virtual private server, albeit Linux, that has worked very well for me. It is hard to beat.

I know, heresy.

But we pay $10/mo for an unlimited number of web sites (we use four), unlimited email accounts (currently only about 25 are used), and 250GB/mo bandwidth. And a complete virtual machine. On-site power generators, guarded perimeter and so on.

The only downside is that you have to do all the work yourself. I don't see that as a downside.

Tough to beat.

Sounds very tempting to me, esp. the "downside"

Have you experienced any trouble with this services?

Pity they run Linux. Should its Unix server, Im in without thinking for 2 seconds

Not at all. Everything has been just fine.

Agreed. Sometimes budget and service (which is pretty good, too) win out over the OS. I admit that using colorized bash is rather a pain.

If you don't want Linux, they also have Windows, I think.
