How to find web hosting that meets my requirements?

To deploy my .NET web-application I need both Windows (for frontend) and Linux (for database) virtual servers (VPS). What Windows+Linux hoster would you recommend?

Of course, I am not interested in Windows or Linux-specific hosters. Also I found some mix hosters who provides low prices for Linux but high for Windows or vice versa.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
There is usually a difference in price between Linux and Windows. This is at least in part, due to the need to pay for Windows licences which aren't applicable on Linux. Question - Why do you need both at the same provider. Why not just choose the best windows provider and the best linux provider? –  Rincewind42 Jul 15 '11 at 2:42
    
But this difference shouldn't be significant (according to the number of licenses providers buy, I guys they have discounts) and I so hostings where it is so. I want database to be near to frontend (high-speed connection). –  Idsa Jul 15 '11 at 3:48

OK, in that case, when choosing a host, be sure to ask them whither the windows and linux boxes will really be sighted close together. I've known some hosts to put different kinds of customers in different locations. –  Rincewind42 Jul 15 '11 at 6:03
    
Thank you! Really good point which I didn't think about –  Idsa Jul 15 '11 at 7:15

GoDaddy's virtual dedicated products have Windows and a couple flavors of Linux available, at equal prices. (Not a recommendation, just pointing out. I've never used GD for hosting.)
