Hello, I'm looking for a VPS hosting plan that can offer:
1) Installation of PHP both as module and as CGI. Access to my php.ini.

2) FTP access to the directory where the mysql tables are stored (../data/).

3) The "AT" scheduler (usually on FreeBsd) in order to schedule tasks that run only once.

4) Of course Cron scheduler but everybody offer it anyway.

5) FTP access to httpd.conf and manual edition of this file.

6) FTP access to each email account.

7) FTP access and manual edition of the files used for email aliasing and forwarding.

The only one I know is Verio but they are too expensive for my budget (about $50/month max.).

Thank you for giving hints.
Have a nice day all!

You may want to take a look at LOD Communications:

They have been around about 10 years, and have their own servers, and can setup any configuration you want.

I have leased 2 Dell servers for years (because I'm an idiot), but always use LOD for my system administration work. I just checked, and it appears they have several configurations in your budget.

Another place I know of is a company called Eryxma Networks. (predictable domain name) I haven't used them myself, though I may in the future. Last time I looked, they offered a 24-hour free trial, too, which sounds to me like a great way to verify that they offer what you need. Assuming you've got the site coded already, 24 hours ought to be plenty of time to get it up and play with it on your trial VPS.

Again, I haven't used them myself so I can't vouch for them, but it's another option.

Hello Dingman and thanks a lot!

It looks promising, and I'm going to send an email to them in order to test their technical level and response delay.
I'll let you know how it goes anyway.

Have a nice day.
