VPS hosts are a total crap shoot. We have gone through 3 of them in Europe, all of whom got good praises on http://www.webhostingtalk.com/

Europe VPS we've tried:
  1. VAServe (a2b2, cheapVPS and many other names)
    1. They got hacked and some other company bought them
    2. They charge $35 USD and 19.99 euros a 17% markup for USD customer
    3. They send invoices in DD/MM/YY format which is confusing as hell. Other competent Euro companies send in DD/MMM/YY so month is spelled out like Oct.
  2. EuroVPS
    1. Their VPS servers just sucked horribly. Couldn't run servers worth a damn
  3. hostineuro
    1. These guys seem awesome so far, really powerful specs for real cheap. Located in Netherlands.

US VPSes:
  1. Proaxxs
    1. located somewhere in PA
    2. No choice of where your VPS will be
    3. They seem ok so far though for $19.99 USD/month

Dedicated servers
  1. Colocrossing
    1. These guys have been pretty awesome. You could host a crap ton of servers on one of their dedicated boxes
    2. Very expensive

Oh I would also like to note that I knew about and used Colocrossing because of their awesome Counter Strike servers http://www.velocity-servers.net/. Someone could talk to them and see if it's possible for them to set up an Altitude server
