I'm looking for a cheap ($10 and under) unmanaged VPS located in either the US or UK, with either the option of CentOS or possibly Arch Linux. I have very low resource requirements, specifically roughly 300mb in terms of space (so a few GB once you take into account the OS install) and 5gb in bandwidth.
The purpose of the VPS will be for my email account and a friend's very low traffic WordPress blog (traffic isn't expected to increase either). So the RAM isn't too much of an issue, but I'd like to have a fairly comfortable amount (enough to run CentOS without any issues with just apache/mysql/mail). I doubt I'd use much in the way of CPU.
I'd just like a stable, reliable, no frills service. Don't need a control panel and I doubt I'd need to use support much. I'm probably asking for too much for $10 a month, feel free to tell me if I am
You can find a unmanaged VPS with at least 512MB with your budget and requirements. Just take a look in the offers section. After finding a suitable provider it's recommend you do some background checks on the provider.

Check if Servebyte is having any specials. They often run "double bandwidth" or "double RAM" specials. I needed more RAM, so I got myself a "double RAM" special for a great price. It's proven to be very reliable and a good performer.
