Hola Javier

Si, no hay no problemas a usar un 'VPS' para MapServer y Ka-Map

Yes, you can absolutely use a VPS as an effecitive server.

My Mapserver/Ka-Map sites are hosted on a VPS hosted by provider

I started very low with a $15 month plan and gradually ramped my way up to
my current service (2GB dedicated RAM, 200MB disk, 2000GB transfer, <1:6
contention ratio, Debian Etch, Apache, MapServer, PostGIS, Ka-Map!, et
al).  This service runs me $125/month, and is more than sufficient for my
total monthly traffic which runs to only about total 10,000
visitors/100,000 hits.  (See for example my ZIP Code mapping site at
HipCodes(dot)com for a live example of MapServer/Ka-Map! running under a
VPS).  I would imagine that the provider you listed below should be
completely sufficient.
