UK Virtual Server setup

We (aegis hosting) do shared hosting and dedicated servers capable of running Magento but we’re adding Virtual Private Servers (VPS) for more demanding web applications like Magento amongst others.

I thought I’d ask what people wanted in a VPS particularly for Magento?

On shared hosting, we run with suPHP, as do many shared hosting providers for security, which causes occasional issues with Magento Connect as there’s a couple of bugs in that that set the wrong permissions on upgrades/installs. Nothing major if you know about them. The other issue with suPHP is that it means you can’t run PHP accelerators since you’re running in CGI mode.

On a VPS/Dedicated server you of course don’t need suPHP and you can run how you want of course.
