Agreed, for most projects a hosted VM is plenty fine. However, if you
have special heavy IO or security and isolation requirements, no
shared hosting platform will beat a dedicated host.

That said, on the VM front I'd recommend:
 - EC2
 - Chunkhost

And on the physical colo front:
 - Cernio
 - Monkeybrains
 - Layer42
 - 365 Main / GNI
