Although the OP was asking about virtual servers, my experience with
serverpronto has also been good - doc.ubuntu.com and much of
ubuntu-it.org runs happily on one of Canonical's rented servers with them.
However, beware: we haven't been able to dist-upgrade since Breezy
because of some kind of kernel bug with their network cards.
For my personal use, a dedicated server is serious overkill, so managed
hosting was the way forward, much cheaper.
