I was able to find a few other KVM hosting providers, but I don't know if they're any good and if their setup and their staff will support you installing Owl into a VPS. Here's a Dutch provider offering Linux KVM VPSes: http://www.pcextreme.nl/vps/kenmerken/ Maybe they will run Owl, maybe not. (Please reply to this message if you find out either way. Thanks in advance.) However, I've just setup this wiki page with VPS hosting providers who offer VPSes with Owl: http://openwall.info/wiki/Owl/hosting Currently, this lists just two providers, both of whom use OpenVZ. So you get the Owl userland inside your VPS, but you do not get the ability to create VPSes-in-VPS, like you could do with a KVM-based "outer" VPS. As the wiki page says, please feel free to add to it. I hope this helps, and thank you for bringing this topic up. Alexander
