I'm using the 1&1 package 'root server' at £49 a month.  To be honest
first impressions are not good as i have been waiting for over a week
for my server.  Apparently there is such a demand for this service that
the parts are out of stock.....Hopefully this is the only teething
problem i'm going to have.

I'll just have to wait and see, i'll keep you updated.
