Summary0001913: Investigate support for some of the other large server providers like DigitalOcean, OVH, etc.
DescriptionThe Linode offering is fantastic:
1- Easy install of ClearOS thanks to the StackScript made by ClearOS
http://www.clearcenter.com/support/documentation/clearos_install_guide/linode [^]
2- Great admin panel for remote management, billing, etc.
3- Easy to upgrade / downgrade plan
4- Data centers in different countries (Japan, UK, USA)
5- Great prices and hourly billing (great for testing, and for temporary scaling up)
6- Affiliate commission going back to the ClearFoundation
6- etc.

However "Note that we do not accept bank/wire transfers, and we have no plans to support PayPal at this time."
https://www.linode.com/docs/platform/billing-and-payments#payment-methods [^]

And some folks have preferences and/or legal requirements to host in their own country. Or they may already have an account with another provider.

We also have AWS EC2:

Some big potential ones include:
OVH / Kimsufi: http://www.kimsufi.com/ [^]
Rackspace: http://www.rackspace.com/cloud/servers/ [^]
Azure: http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/virtual-machines/ [^]
SoftLayer: http://www.softlayer.com/virtual-servers [^]
DigitalOcean: http://trends.netcraft.com/www.digitalocean.com [^]

These providers typically offer many distros, but if they don't offer ClearOS in the list, there should be something like StackScript or the capacity to upload an ISO. Or a wiki page with the steps.

Also worth looking into providers that are already advertising ClearOS support, such as:
http://www.dotblock.com/clearos_vps_hosting/clearos_vps.php [^] (You need to ask tech support, and they will put ClearOS 6.4)

Thanks!
