New SecuraBit VPS! (We have since cancelled and will be moving to something else soon)

Linode with CentOS. However, no SELinux available

For CentOS help go to: #CentOS on irc.freenode.net

Tips for configuring the new server:

Disable root login on ssh Good passwords Lock down ports

The Securabit guys started using the CentOS distribution because of its interconnections with Snort

See this site for details on how to configure Snort on CentOS
