I've discovered the hard way that Xen is the only virtual server system that plays well with SBCL. Budget Dedicated have been doing a reasonable job with Xen so far, but the website's responsiveness just ain't there. I'm getting the itch to move to dedicated hardware (just as everybody's going the other way); anybody have any tips?
I refuse to use USA-based hosting, because "adult" content is involved, and I don't need politically-motivated trouble from there, any more than I need it from here in Australia. At worst, I'll hire a server here until/unless I get actual problems, but I really don't need to scramble in response to a take-down notice.
So... any tips? A quick initial search has turned up EasySpeedy, which looks promising.
[Edit: FlexiScale also looks good. Might just test their offering and report back.]
