Hi all,

Apologies if this kind of question gets asked over and over again:

For a website I'm planning to release in a month or so, I'm looking for
the 'perfect' hosting package. These are my requirements:

OS: preferably FreeBSD but any other UNIX/Linux variant will do.

As I'm developing my application in REBOL, I probably need root access in
order to install the interpreter, right? If some sysadmin would be inclined
to install it for me, that's fine, too. I don't care about PHP, SQL or even
Apache, as my app will have it's own embedded webserver and DB-engine.

Location: I live in the Netherlands but I suppose it doesn't really matter
where my hosting provider is located?

Capacity (bandwidth, mem, disk, processor): this really depends on how
popular my site will become: the app itself is very light-weight. I would
like to start small with the possibility to upgrade easily and quickly.

Service: at least hardware monitoring and automatic daily backups.

Price: At this point I'm willing to pay around 30 EUR or 45 US$ per month.

I hope someone could point me in the right direction as there are simply too
many hosting providers out there to investigate even some of them :-/

TIA, Bas
