I use this service and highly recommend it, but it definitely falls under 
the "jail" category. They've modified the stock FreeBSD jails pretty 
heavily and most of the time it's not obvious you're running in a jail, but 
if you want to do anything like create virtual interfaces, use your own 
mountpoints or (as the OP mentioned) experiment with firewall setups you'll 
be out of luck.

JC does also offer dedicated servers on which they're more than happy to 
install and support FreeBSD, but I'm not sure that meets the "low-cost"
