I'm looking to move from shared hosting to a manged server for a couple of sites running medium sized VBulletin forums, plus a couple of dozen low traffic sites.
I'm considering Gossamer Host (can't post a link , but if you know about them that won't be a problem!). From what I have seen I like their attitude, and their basic package will give me enough of everything for the time being.
I know I can get more disk space and data transfer for less $ elsewhere, but the management features (backup, monitoring, firewall etc) seem to be expensive add-ons on some other "managed" servers.
Does anyone here have any experience of them? Anything to look out for? Any similar but better options I should consider?
 I can understand why links aren't allowed in the first few posts, but it's really annoying to lose the whole post and not have the option to just go back and edit it!
