Most of the ones I checked out were not local, just did some google 
action to get a general idea of the cost.  This is all very new to me, 
so not sure on all the lingo.  By "rent" I mean instead of buying a 1U 
server and then driving it down to them, you choose one from them.  I 
guess that is "dedicated", it's definately not shared hosting.  Entire 
server is still yours, just not for keeps. ;)  To rent a server from 
UVNet it is from $39 to $100+.  I imagine many of the companies around 
here have similar plans.  Next time I'll definately look local before 
hitting google, that's a big price difference.
