how much u get for ur cash ? Provider now allowing any swap on VPS
don't sound good to me. Im for example using linode.com, for $20 u get
360 MB ram, 16GB storage and 200GB transfer and all swap u want. Dunno
if its a good offer (didnt tried other VPSes) but at least on XEN
based VPS u dont have to pay more if ure afraid to get 1MB over RAM ;]
