    Hi Alexmk,

    Is there any specific reason for considering FreeBSD VPS ?

    that's the only OS I happen to know and have experience working with. No that kind of time to learn something new!

    Having severs with customer data on it without proper monitoring is like having one night stand without using protections - eventually, there will be an 'oh s**t!' moment.

    I know that SolarVPS's unmanaged brand offers FreeBSD Jails -- www.jvds.com

    Good luck in finding a provider!

    Keep in mind that if you go with a provider like RootBSD (or anyone else who is using Xen) your freebsd VPS is going to be running under full hardware virtualization, and will be far less efficient than a jailed freebsd instance (OS level virtualization). This is the price you pay for the added flexibility, unfortunately; paravirtualization support for freebsd is still pretty shaky, at least until 8.0.

    Do a search and you'll hit a number of reviews and posts about FreeBSD hosts.

    I wouldn't recommend a FreeBSD jail unless I was sure the VPS application was fully compatible. For example, running PostgreSQL in jails can be tricky without the host allowing SysV IPC, a security hole.

    I suggest using xen virtualization for your FreeBSD vps rather that jailed FreeBSD, as it saves you many hours of struggling with the jails.

    ARP has a good network for Asia / Australian clients too.

    FreeBSD 8 will ship (?) with an enhanced "jails" version including memory and cpu limits, and more importantly with ZFS. If you plant a jail within a zfs it seems very interesting, as permits to clone jails, set quota, apply mirror and RaidZ solutions very easily and safely(In the same way that zones on Solaris live inside zfs filesystems).

    RootBSD.net , JohnCompanies.com (tested, but i prefer the first)
    bsdcell.net and bsdvm.com (not tested)
