i have enough data to write an extensive report - we evaluated
about a dozen of them very thoroughly, as potential replacements
for the current notabug software

for hosting, any *nix-like system would suffice; so any VPS
provider would be suitable - i would especially emphasize
avoiding those if possible, and preferring a local hardware
option though, such as the user-friendly olimex "freedombox"

now, i know that GNU would not like to suggest using non-FSDG
distros; so that puts most VPS rental services out of the
question (i do know of two though) - the freedombox system is
based on debian; but if there were sufficient enthusiasm about
it, especially from GNU or FSF, freedombox could be ported to a
FSDG distro - myself and denis ('gnutoo') have been discussing
doing so, recently
