Hi Sarel

I have had experience with Hetzner in Germany and DataPro in Cape Town.
Hetzner with dedicated servers and DataPro with a clients' own servers. 

Offshore hosting has the advantage of negligible bandwidth costs. 

I have come across a couple of North American services that cover the
mapserver and postgis part of your stack, not sure about the MS

I have generally done full management along with Tim Sutton (Linfiniti)
or directly with my clients on the following stack:

Ubuntu server
MapServer/Mapnik/GeoServer/QGIS map server
Python (mainly Django)/php(a little)

A few of us (AfriSpatial and Linfiniti so far that I know of) are
offering / keen to offer hosting solutions on more or less the above
stack so please continue the discussion on or off list. These would most
likely be VPS or shared servers.

It would also be interesting to see your results if you're planning to
share them.
