Hi All,

Does anybody have any advice on which dedicated host to go with? I'm looking for a usual LAMP setup to host Joomla and Wordpress sites, and provide email (POP and IMAP) to multiple clients. In the ideal, I'd also love to provide iCal services to people in my own company.

I've been looking closely at SoftLayer (Dedicated Servers | Cloud Servers | Infrastructure as a Service) but wondered if any of you have opinions.

Thanks!

PS: The main reason we're looking at dedicated services is to escape spam issues, whereby some abusive user on a shared host gets the whole server blacklisted... My hope is that a dedicated server will reduce or eliminate the probability of this happening again.
