Internet & Networking With financial backing from the likes of Michael Dell and other venture capitalists, open source upstart Nginx has edged out Microsoft IIS (Internet Information Server) to hold the title of second-most widely used Web server among all active websites. What's more, according to Netcraft's January 2012 Web Server Survey, Nginx over the past month has gained market share among all websites, whereas competitors Apache, Microsoft, and Google each lost share.

jaypee,
muszek,

I looked at webhostingtalk - frankly the lack of structured organization put me off, but I see you guys are right - I do see a very wide range of VPS prices (albeit from obscure vendors) from $8 to $50. I have to wonder why the range is so different for similar packages? My experience with shared hosting makes me wary of overselling, but I have to admit at those prices VPS seems irresistible enough to consider switching away from cheap shared hosting on better known vendors.

Thanks also for the link to lowendbox.com, I like how well organized it is.
