Probably a silly question, but is Centminmod a replacement for Plesk?
I saw this in the faq which confused me
If I were you I would not use cPanel or Plesk. They are both resource heavy and since you are looking for an entry level VPS, I would recommend using DirectAdmin.I currently use www.ezee.co.uk in the UK.
I'm currently looking at the option on OVH.co.uk - They offer VPS SSD for £5.99 a month:
From 2 GHz
4 GB RAM
40 GB SSD NEW
However adding on cPanel adds an additional £8.49 a month. I've only used cPanel before. Are any of the following options they offer just as easy to use?

Thanks for that. In the grand scheme of things, my forum is small - just slightly too big for shared hosting.If I were you I would not use cPanel or Plesk. They are both resource heavy and since you are looking for an entry level VPS, I would recommend using DirectAdmin.
As I mentioned before I registered my domains at Aionets.com, recently (about 3 months ago) I ordered a Cloud Server (2 VCPU and 4GB of RAM) from them with DirectAdmin license. Since I didn't want to pay alot, I did not order a support plan and I asked then for FreeBSD to be installed as my operating system. Now I am almost managing everything myself using DirectAdmin and sometimes I ask their support for basic stuffs and they are pretty helpful. Good enough for me.
After 3 months I am in love with FreeBSD/NGiNX and PHP-FPM
Including the DirectAdmin license I am paying 9.95 USD/month with no limitation on domains
My PIN was done by phone i needed to provide a phone number and bank account.Sods law! Still waiting for my VPS to be set up. Contacted Strato (Thanks again Google Translate!) and they are sending a PIN to my home address as a security measure! Hopefully Germany to UK post wont take too long!
Ah interesting.My PIN was done by phone i needed to provide a phone number and bank account.
Well i paid with ideal (Netherlands bank payment) so you pay like x amount and you are done.Ah interesting.
I had to provide bank account details when I signed up, so they have them details. I did email back asking if I could send them a copy of my driving licence to try and speed things along.
