I tried setting up sitefinity on a vps a while back, it was not a pleasant experience. the biggest problem was ram. I think I had setup with 512 MB of ram, the site would NOT run. it kept throwing out of memory exceptions, even when it was the only site running!
I think the biggest problem was that I had setup my sql server on the same machine. I was told this wouldn't be a problem but clearly it was! if you have a lot of ram it might be worth it, otherwise you might want a separate machine for your database...
so I would highly recommend you go with a trusted shared provider, or invest in a better spec'd machine
just my opinion, hope it was helpful!
