Did you read the e-mail and examine the URL included at the bottom? I am
including them here again:

http://mike.passwall.com/colocation.html

For more up-to-date data, try checking out these two as they will likely
be more current:
http://www.hostchart.com/
http://www.webhosters.com/

A quick visit to http://www.hostchart.com/ selecting the checkbox for UNIX
and then pressing search provided a number of virtual hosting solutions
with ssh/telnet access and other things too.

These last two links are very useful for comparitive shopping on price and
features. Once you have a few selected, doing searches on google for the
name of the provider and complaints or praise with google can give you
some idea.

At the very least, you can get an idea what you dollar can buy you.
