You can: log in, read the tech support FAQ, or request your lost password. This dumb message (and those ads) will appear on every screen until you register! Get rid of this crap by registering your own SA Forums Account and joining roughly 150,000 Goons, for the one-time price of $9.95!

You keep saying this, but it just isn't true in my experience. Way smaller margins on VPS than shared hosting, so VPS hardware just isn't as good, and usually way more oversold.

If you go with a host that has gambit of different hosting options, then this is usually true. If you go with a host that specializes in ONE thing, such as VPS hosting, chances are, you're going to get a MUCH better offering. They typically have a better understanding of how to run ship and keep people happy. At least, the bigger ones usually do.

If you go with a bigger specialty host, you'll probably have better hardware, nodes tweaked and patched to perform significantly better in virtual environments, quieter neighbors (lots of hosts have "offload" nodes for noisy customers), etc. If you know what you're doing, you can cache a whole bunch, tweak Apache, DNS, etc. Likely going to have a much better experience there than on shared.
