virtual dedicated server recommendations

 I am paying $65 a month for colo of my 1U server, 
which is an old 750 mhz pentium III. I am thinking of 
upgrading it, but also I'd like to spend less money, 
which is making me think of moving onto a virtual 
hosted server environment. I have to say I really 
haven't kept up with this market too much. I don't use 
a lot of bandwidth, but don't want to have bill shock 
if i get slashdotted either. I am running debian on my 
current server, and am considering moving to Ubuntu 
6.06 LTS. I'd also like to have some facility for data 

I own my own Class C. A portable one. I am hoping to route this again. 
Ideally, I'd like to use a few IPs from it for my own 
use but trade the rest of it for free virtual hosted 
server at a reputable place (i.e. one which won't give 
out my IP space to spammers). I am hard up for money 
these days, so I am trying to maximize my resources, 
and I know that IP space is dear. I've been running 
this server ( for friends since 1995. I 
don't want to move it to gmail or otherwise loose 
control of it, but the $65 is going to go up shortly, 
and that hurts.
