Stupid question. Let's say I own coolstuff.com. When I sign up, it asks me for a server name. Does it matter what I put in there? What is that server name used for? I assume if I choose something like chuk.coolstuff.com, I just create an A name for www in my DNS?
you eventually need a server to actually host "coolstuff.com", which is what this would be for - they would likely give you a static IP address such as 12.34.56.78, and from there you could have a web server like apache running on their box 24/7 and backed up by them

Right, I understand what a VPS is, etc. I'm wondering what is the significance of the actual server name that I choose when signing up. It asks you the domain name (coolstuff.com), but then it asks you for a server name. That server name then shows up under your account. (chuk.coolstuff.com). What is the server name portion for?

Also, can you easily change your server type after the fact? (like from centos to ubuntu, etc)

Just checked their control panel - looks like you can re-install any OS at any time

Good deal for the 2GB of memory. Kinda lame they don't have Ubuntu 12.04/12.10 as an available OS.

They Use an older OpenVZ kernel that doesn't support Ubuntu 12.04. Many budget VPS providers use the older OpenVZ kernel.

Don't try to upgrade to Ubuntu 12.04 without going through the steps listed here [askubuntu.com]

If you need the kind of reliability or advanced features that come with Linode, Rackspace or Amazon EC2 you are not in the market for $30 a year hosting.

I have used Chicago VPS for around a year. Besides the hacking incident, they are good for the money.
that's reassuring :p
