Pandela

They are a web hosting company that specializes in virtual private servers. This means you would receive what looks like an entire server dedicated to your use, but it is really a slice of an existing server. This allows the hosting company to still implant multiple accounts per physical server while giving you full control over your hosting service.

They offer both Windows and Linux based virtual private servers.

Web hosting type: 

Glow Host

A web hosting provider with a comprehensive range of plans (from shared hosting to dedicated servers) and is also carbon neutral.

On shared hosting they make a clear distinction of how many customers are hosted per server for every. Most hosting providers don't do this, so it's a refreshing bit of transparency. Their "semi-dedicated plan" likewise has a clearly specified number of customers per server.

I have been a happy customer of rimuhosting for several years. They specialize in VPS hosting (virtual private servers) and dedicated hosting, using Linux as the operating system, and having especially good support for Java servlet configuration. My service with them has always been reliable, and the response to queries and support requests very good.

They can set up most any Linux distro on a server (or VPS) and have a lot of useful configuration tips and tricks in their support section.
