i'm running some servers in germany. my experiences with virtual
servers were quite bad. at least with netclusive (a very cheap german
provider) it is almost impossible to run a tor server. i think the
main problem with vservers is, that the provider can (and probably
will) limit your ressources. i had lots of problems with full memory,
exceeded number of open files, number of tcp- and other sockets etc.
Now i'm running tor inside a virtual machine on my own dedicated
server, which is hosted by ngz-servers.de. they sometimes have very
interesting offers ("sonderangebote") for root servers. Support is not
the best, but server works fine, and is quite cheap (20?/month). If
you should happen to buy one server there, you could give them my
customerid, and i will in return get half of your first monthly fee.
Hope that helped
