I would recommend Slicehost.com, which I have had 900+ days of uptime.

But they have been purchased by Rackspace, and in the process of transition.

 Linode is got. I have a lot of friends recommending them, and have one
client on them. Only for a few months, and no trouble so far.

I would recommend the latest Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server. You get current
packages and upgrades are easy via aptitude.

It costs $20 a month for 512MB.

Stay away from any hosting provider that uses Virtuozzo/OpenVZ. Stay
with those who use Xen.
