It's not really rocket science to set up your own server, is it? We got a
dedicated server here, on a fixed IP address. We just put windows 2000
professional (not even server) on it with Apache, and that suffices for
running Chameleon and Mapserver. I think anything above 1GHz gets you decent
performance if you don't have too much data in it.

Depending on what it costs for you to get a fixed IP address, it could even
become profitable if you get your client to pay a little for the hosting
that you offer (like we do; we recoupe our internet connection costs this

I hate to be a cynic on this one because I love Mapserver, but I am
skeptical about Mapserver hosting. I finally bit the bullet and bought my
own server just for testing, but probably will still eventually deploy to a
dedicated server. I'm not naming names, but my experience with more than one
supposed Mapserver hosting op...left me, well...cynical...and out a good
deal of cash.

Good Luck.
