For now more than a year position-absolute.com has been hosted by linode. Linode offer great unmanaged VPS hosting. This has really been beneficial for my own experience to delve in the Linux world and build my web server from scratch. Buuuutt the time comes when I don’t want to play in apache and mysql config anymore.
Webfaction is a great semi-managed VPS hosting. You get half the ram you would get with an unmanaged VPS but installing an application is as easy as using wordpress. For example, you can deploy a Django application in about 5 minutes.
Things might be unstable for a couple of days.
