Feasibility of low-ram VPS
So I'm looking at things like hostsolutions.ro, where their cheapest VPS has 256 MB RAM. How does that even work? I can't even boot up Ubuntu Server installer on VirtualBox with that kind of memory - it just kernel panics. How does anyone manage to run any stuff on it? Can I expect nginx to even start at all, let alone handle more than five visitors at once? What's interesting is that it's not just the dirt cheap providers that skimp on the RAM. Why even limit to such ridiculous extent when normal usage isn't going to be that high.
