Out of curiosity, what's your reason for rejecting standard shared
hosting? I've played around with a Linode server and now use shared
hosting. For me, the only difference is that you don't get root on the
latter and the former is cheaper, but that doesn't mean anything since
you can install any software locally. I run a local copy of spamassassin
to filter my email and it is beautiful.
I blogged about my experience so far with Dreamhost here:
