VPSland just made a transition of billing and cPanel upgrades and I was 
with them during those changes and I just found shooting them a quick 
email my issue was resolved quickly.  Those reviews may have been done 
during that transition but if you are still new to command line I would 
suggest staying with SDF and going Arpa, that gives you a year and I 
think up's your GopherSpace but don't quote me on that.  The one time 
$39 for the year sure beats any VPS hosting you will find anywhere.  I 
left their service (SDF) as a reason of ethics as I am working on a 
project now that some "security conscious" individuals would find 
detrimental to having their systems tied to.  I use my VPS as a relay 
proxy for my AS400 I recently had donated via a private contributer and 
project development and research publishing via secure OpenVPN intranet 

An important note to throw out there with VPS or SDF for that matter is 
that you have no guarantee to personal privacy under any constitutional 
rights as they are not hosted on your own personal equipment.  So 
technically Uncle Sam can peek and seize anything about anywhere you 
have remotely hosted with the exception of collocation.
