The following is my own personal opinion and does not necessarily
represent the opinion or the official position of the Debian organization
itself. I am not a Debian developer and I do not speak for the Debian
organization in any capacity. I am just a Debian user. That is all.

I'll tell you one outfit I will definitely *not* recommend: multibuild.org.
I don't know if they offer a general hosting service or not, but they
do host at least one web server for the Debian organization itself:
lophos.multibuild.org. I don't know what else may be on that server, but
one thing I do know that is on that server, or is supposed to be on
that server, is the latest development version of Debian Installer for
the s390 architecture. See the following web page:

http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/

On that page, click on the "s390" link, which is under the heading
"other images (netboot, usb stick, floppy, etc)". This is supposed
to take you to http://lophos.multibuild.org/d-i/images/daily/
but it doesn't. It times out. As far as I can tell, the server is
down. And it has been down for days, maybe as long as two weeks.
I don't know. Maybe Debian didn't pay their bill or something.
But I've sent the sysadmin a note about it days ago, and nothing
happens. I'm glad they don't host for me. In the meantime, I am
forced to wait.
