My reply is to a message over half a year old, but what you are looking
for might be www.hostsharing.net.  They are running Debian and they word
their intentions as "applying the open source philosophy to managed
hosting".  They used to host in the US, but now their servers are all in
Germany.  If there is sufficient demand, I guess they might restart
providing services there in case that is necessary.
