I have tried a number of different VPS's and I have finally landed at 
slicehost. (www.slicehost.com).
The management app they have have built is amazing. You can add and 
resize slices (that's what
they call their VPS's) through an amazing simple interface. They offer a 
number of different
Linux distributions, I went with

They start at $20 for 256MB. I would go for the 512MB slice ($38) which 
easily hold
a couple small Plone sites in a single zope instance. I use nginx 
instead of Apache to keep the
overhead low.

Hope this helps.
