I have a box at sonic.net - their standard co-lo box is Linux but if you 
ask they will install FreeBSD for you on the understanding that they 
won't support OS problems.   See https://tools.sonic.net/signup/1u/   - 
the nice thing about sonic is you get to talk to real people if you have 
support issues - their CEO even answers questions in the sonic.* newsgroups.

I don't work for them - I'm just a happy customer
