You seem to be saying that Burton are so cheap by not having any
customer service :-)

I use bytemark for most of my stuff, and keyweb.de for the high-traffic
but really simple stuff that I don't mind occasionally going down. Not
that it *has* gone down in the several months I've used 'em. My
Wikipedia proxy <http://wikiproxy.cantrell.org.uk/> and CPANdeps
<http://cpandeps.cantrell.org.uk/> run at keyweb. IIRC I pay EUR12 a
month for unlimited traffic but a fairly pathetic amount of disk and
memory. Also beware that it's not a proper virtual machine, it seems
to be a chrooted and ulimited environment, and customer service is mostly
They really don't seem to mind about the bandwidth - I know people who
