Hello All;
My current web hosting company is OK, I am on a shared hosting plan.
However, I am wanting and needing to move over to a dedicated server for all my sites.
The VPS that is available through the hosting company I am with is:

768mb Ram
1500GB Data Transfer
50GB Storage
2 Dedicated IPs
Plesk 10 Control Panel

8x CPU Cores
2048MB Guaranteed RAM
2000GB Data Transfer
100GB Storage
2 Dedicated IPs
Plesk 10 Control Panel

The prices seem a bit steep, and the RAM, especially for the lower cost one, seems really low, especially if I am going to have SQL Server running on the system as well.

I checked on 1 and 1
And they do not offer SQL Server, only MySQL, so they are out.

This is what I am needing and require.

#1: ASP Classic and .NET
#2: SQL Server 2005 (If possible) if this is not available, then 2008 or 2012 may be an option, as long as I can import all current databases to this platform)
#3: SQL Server databases have to be unlimited, as I have a lot of databases currently, and will be adding more in the future, so it has to be unlimited, or at least a good large number.. 30+ with unlimited size for growth.
#4: I have to be able to connect to the SQL Server, with SQL Server Management Studio.
#5: URL rewrite (Either available, or can be installed with no extra charge)
#6: Large enough Data Storage, and Data Transfer.
#7: The ability to work with IIS, for all Error pages, for custom pages.

There is more, I just cannot think of it right this moment.
Any and all suggestions welcomed.
