Know of any good VPS providers?

A few weeks back I formally announced Techman's World IRC (though those who are in in the Techman's World chat room knew about it weeks before), and created its own separate website for it.

Right now, I do have a working demo set up, but I am looking for good VPS providers. A VPS is a virtual private server, and is a type of hosting in which a server is hosted virtually on a real, physical server. A VPS is generally used when you only need a specific amount of resources, and it is cheaper to pay for since you're not using a dedicated server.

Right now the project is at a bit of a stand-still while I look for a good VPS provider, but you can help speed up the process by giving your favorite recommendations. Note that I am looking for VPS providers that allow the hosting of IRCd's, or basically IRC servers. If a VPS provider doesn't say if they allow IRCd hosting or not, go ahead and post in the comments anyways. I appreciate the help.
