Hi List.

Note that serverpronto is still $30/month for a P4/256MB/40GB dedicated
server machine. Their network is reliable enough to do MySQL replication,
not reliable enough for a corporate-class web site though.

So for personal use, SP is prolly cheaper.

If you owned a maxed-out machine you wanted to colocate, or needed
free speech support, the community hosting might be interesting, but
"starting at $45/month" could mean the actual price is more.
