With a VPS, the whole point of it is that the actions of a user in an environment wouldn't affect the actions of another user in a different part of the machine. While your site may run slow, and may produce an error or something, it's odd that the host would be suspending the account for CPU usage. I've not seen hosts suspend VPS Accounts for CPU usage before.
My VPS most of the time is using less than 500 megs of memory, so memory is not the problem.
I have found the following deal with FDCServers.net:
ATOM 330 (dual core) + 2GB RAM + 200GB HDD $49/month
will this work fine for what I need?
