If you're really looking for a provider offering true FreeBSD virtual
private server solution, chance are, they are most likely running jail
systems. For everything else, your choice might be companies providing Xen,
LVS, UML, or even vmware solutions although companies are less likely to
offer the last option option. I suggest you do some more research if a jail
based virtual private server solution will suite to your needs, e.g; you
require a dedicated resource allocation (e.g, minimum guaranteed memory
etc.) that you won't get from a shared server solution, or you need a full
access to the virtual environment including software compilation, or even
kernel compilation, as well as firewall configuration etc. Once you've
finalized your requirements, you can now do another research on the
technical approach used by each of those solutions and finally base your
decision if a particular solution really satisfy your needs.
