I'm looking for a host, preferably based in the US (even better if it's central...I'm in Dallas) that offers services similar to Softlayer except at a lower starting price. I'm really looking for a host that I can start off with about a $20-30/month price and grow over time.
What I like about Softlayer is that they don't have predefined plans and you can add additional storage. If their lowest plan wasn't $50/month I'd go with them now.
(I'm currently running a small email server on a VPS [Slicehost] and running out of storage so I'd like to move somewhere that I can easily scale storage and other resources. I'd also use this service for future Rails instances [although VPS.net looks good for that])
