Self-managed dedicated Linux hosting

Hello perl mongers,

I'm looking to move a number of domains I have to a new self-managed server.

The main impetus for this is that I can't do the things I want to do with a 
new perl-related site I'm setting up, with the virtual hosting package that 
I'm currently using.

I'd love to hear from anyone who can recommend a company that provides 
self-managed, dedicated servers running Linux.

Self-managed dedicated hosting means at least:

  * root access
  * freedom to install any software you like (such as mod_perl)
  * freedom to run multiple domains from the one box

See below for some of the providers that I'm aware of. As you'll see the 
local Australian offerings are expensive.
