VPSs come with a wide range or prices and a wide range of reliabilities
and levels of security.

I operate one of TDE's mirrors.  It needs a lot of disk space and a lot
of bandwidth but it does not need exceptional uptime guarantees and I
don't need to run background checks on the host's sysadmins.  So I use
a reasonably inexpensive VPS for that.

At the other end of the spectrum my business's main server is on a
Linode with exceptional toolset, reliability, security, and price.

Other services are similarly hosted on VPSs or real servers either in
house or at various price points in major data centers.

Without wishing to cast any aspersions on or anybody else,
some of the functions currently hosted by Tim do need significant
reliability and security.
