Debian Hosting Providers

During my tech-life I had to deal with number of Web Hosting providers and truth to be said I have had extremely pleasant experience with many of them although I don't use any but two of them now.
Truth to be said I picked them because they offered Debian based dedicated, VPS or shared, although on shared it doesn't matter if it's Debian or not but I'm so extreme when it comes to GNU/Linux.
LayeredTech.com: my first experience with them was when it was my task to hunt for a decent dedicated servers provider and since I was the administrator to be I picked them because they have a good reputation and they provide Debian and Ubuntu! my experience with them were so good, they are fantastic people although I don't remember flagging any of our tickets to them as critical but their support was always fast, it's worth mentioning that our machine with Layered Tech would have been running without the need to reboot for almost two years now but in real life we needed to reboot for kernel upgrades.
Linode.com: One of my freelance projects needed a decent hosting that is not as pricey as dedicated hosting and not as restricted as shared hosting so the decision was to go with VPS solution and again because the guys at linode.com have decent reputation I picked them and honestly never needed to contact them other than requesting upgrades and/or downgrades; our VPS account, seriously I have never had any problem with them not a single glitch.
Dreamhost.com I wonder who don't know about Dreamhost.com, they are really good at least in the big picture of it, many of my personal small and petite projects are running on dreamhost and actually on the same account. Their accounts are highly flexible and you could use your account for various things starting from hosting your blog ending with setting up a VPN over your account or even running a personal Debian repository and again they run Debian. Although they get many glitches but they are so transparent about it and so quick in fixing them too considering the large setup they have.
One of my dreams other than studying at MIT which I cannot afford now is working in an internships with Dreamhost.com, it's not a feasible dream, anyway.
If you have been into hosting business as in reselling or were hired as a system administrator then you would definitely value decent providers such as the mentioned above.
NOTE: Dreamhost link has a referral parameter, if you don't like the idea just go to dreamhost.com

  1. DreamHost is an amazing company. Their administration panel is just amazing. Specially for people who have never hosted anything online before. What i like about them is that they provide you a flexible level of details and control based on your knowledge and administration skills. This is pretty awesome.
    However, their downside is that for memory/CPU intensive web apps (such as RoR) you are kinda out of luck because shared hosting really doesn't scale up in such cases. Fortunately DreamHost did introduce VPS hosting ... so we'll see how that turns out.
    I think you should also add SliceHost to your list above. They have really awesome and affordable VPS hosting that you can scale up and down very easily. I honestly was very pleased using them.

Rules of war (in a nutshell)

https://youtu.be/HwpzzAefx9M Since the beginning, humans have resorted to violence as a way to settle disagreements. Yet through the ages, people from around the world have tried to limit the brutality of war. It was this humanitarian spirit that led to the First Geneva Convention of 1864, and to the birth of modern International Humanitarian Law. Setting the basic limits on how wars can be fought, these universal laws of war protect those not fighting, as well as those no longer able to. To do this, a distinction must always be made between who or what may be attacked, and who or what must be spared and protected.
